More than 100 cooks from the River Valley will be cooking their favorite dishes in Dutch ovens on Saturday, Sept. 8, in downtown Van Buren.

The Dutch oven lid lifting event will begin at 11:30 a.m. in The Old Town Merchants Association parking lot at Seventh and Webster streets, across from the Post Office.

The $10 tickets will be sold at the event as a fundraiser for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Crawford County.

Dutch Oven Lid Lifting will be held in conjunction with TOTMA’s Second Saturday event.

“Come join the fun, have some great food, vote for your favorites and support CASA at the same time,” said Celeste Lewis, director of CASA.

Cooks who want to participate should call CASA at 474-8501 or Delta Investments at 474-4300.

The mission of CASA is to recruit, train and support volunteer advocates who will serve to ensure safe permanent homes for abused and neglected children in the community.
