2014 Muffins and Beards

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of a hospital in Decorah, Winneshiek Medical Center sponsored a William Smith Beard Look-Alike contest and a Matilda Muffin contest in 2014.

Based on the portrait of William Smith, Dave Lenth of West Union was selected as the Beard contest winner.  The Matilda Muffin contest was won by Mary Lou Hackman with her Morning Glory Muffins.  The contest was judged both on the basis of the muffins and the presentation of the muffins while wearing 1914-period attire.
