Some popular presenters from past shows are making return engagements for the The Times-Gazette’s 2017 Salt Homemakers Show on April 27 at the Patriot Center at Southern State Community College.

This year’s show will feature the father and son team of local veterinarians Rob and Reid Sharp, along with Highland County Commissioner Shane Wilkin and his cooking partner, Highland County Prosecutor Anneka Collins, as well as Hillsboro Mayor Drew Hastings and his wife, Taryn.

The program, which typically draws 500 to 600 people, showcases guest chefs showing off their culinary skills in a fun and informative presentation that often brings laughter through humor that is both planned and unplanned.

“This is always one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year,” said Gary Abernathy, publisher and editor of The Times-Gazette. “We appreciate the celebrity chefs who will share some of their favorite recipes, and you can bet that they and the audience will have a lot of fun in the process.”

Sharon Hughes, media sales director for The Times-Gazette, will once again emcee the show along with Leslie Ramsey of WVNU.

“I’m excited about this year’s show,” said Hughes. “Tickets always go fast, so people should call to reserve as soon as possible. Don’t miss this year’s show, it’s going to be something special.”

Tickets at $7 each are on sale now for the show, which will again be held at the Patriot Center at Southern State Community College. The 29th edition of the show will be held on Thursday, April 27. Doors open at 4 p.m. for people to visit the many vendors on hand, with the show beginning at 6 p.m.

Tickets can be reserved by calling 937-393-3456 or stopping by the newspaper office at 108 Gov. Trimble Place in Hillsboro. Vendors wishing to participate with booths or tables can reserve spots by calling 937-393-3456.

As always, the event will support the Highland County Homeless Shelter. Anyone bringing five cans of food will receive one door prize ticket. Bringing 10 cans of food will net three door prize tickets. As many as 100 gifts and door prizes are distributed throughout the program.
