On November 14 residents and hosts/hostesses from each of the four cottages at Prairie Ridge Care Center in Orange City made pies for a pie contest. That evening, Prairie Ridge residents and guests gathered in the care center’s Community Center for the pie judging. Orange City Area Health System CEO Marty Guthmiller, Prairie Ridge Food Services Manager Sharon Vermeer, and Prairie Ridge Administrator Char Ten Clay judged the 13 pie entries. Shown here are the judges with the cottage representative winners for Flakiest Crust, Best Fruit Pie and Best Cream Pie. The Apple Carmel Pie took the highest honor of Best Overall Pie. Following the judging the residents and their guests shared the pies. Prairie Ridge Care Center, owned and operated by Orange City Area Health System, is the region’s newest home for seniors, located on the north edge of Orange City.
