As everyone prepared to watch the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby, Morning Pointe of Danville residents and volunteers prepared for a contest of culinary skill. The personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care community hosted its second annual “Derby Bake-off” where participants put their pastry-baking skills to the test.

Volunteers from Boyle County High and Middle schools and Centre College judged more than a dozen pies and cookies in three categories: pie, homemade cookies and “resident’s choice pie.”

Taking home the top prize for the pie contest was Melinda Weathers of Danville. Debbie Steele of Harrodsburg won the cookie category, and the “resident’s choice pie” winner was the “Thoroughbred pie” by Daryl Walton of Harrodsburg. But the real winners were everyone who participated, as each person enjoyed sampling all of the delicious desserts, making the second year of the bake-off a success for all.
