MILLERSPORT – All mayors within the Greater Buckeye Lake Area are invited to participate in a special corn eating contest at the 69th Annual Millersport Sweet Corn Festival.
This contest is not about how much corn one can eat, but how quickly one can clear and eat one ear of corn. Each public servant will be competing against other lake area mayors and the winner will receive a trophy that they can keep and display in their office until next year, when it will be passed on to the next winner.
The contest will take place on Wednesday September 2 at 8:00 PM in the Founders’ Commons stage area. This is an annual event designed to encourage friendly competition between area mayors. Mayor Dean Severance of Millersport is our defending champion from 2013 and 2014. Come out and try to unseat him as the reigning champion.
We appeal to the residents of each community surrounding Millersport to encourage their mayor to consider participating in this fun event. If the mayor is unable to participate, he or she may have someone from their city council represent their home town in the mayor’s place.
To register please RSVP at 740-405-9871 by Tuesday, September 1 by calling with the name of the individual that will be representing your community and the name of your village/ town/city. You do NOT have to RSVP to participate. The Millersport Lions Club hopes to see a representative from all of our lake area communities biting down on a buttered ear of corn.
