For the 1821-2021 Montgomery County Bicentennial each of the twenty towns in Montgomery County created a birthday cake for Montgomery County's birthday.


We worked on the Walshville Bicentennial cake this afternoon. Patty Whitworth, Walshville Mayor Joy McDonald and Ruth Schmitt.

On Sunday May 16, 2021 I hit the trail to Walshville with Patty Whitworth and we gave them a hand creating the Walshville cake.
