Having a ‘wild’ time


The annual Wild Game Cookout, sponsored by the Friends of Sampson County Waterways, was held Jan. 9 at Clinton City Market. As has become tradition, the event expanded the palette while raising money to protect and preserve Sampson’s many local waterways. Among the menu items at the cookout were bear bites, oysters alfredo, smoked goose, frog legs, squirrel casserole, bear stew and many other delicacies, as well as some traditional offerings such as chicken and pastry, boiled potatoes, coleslaw and baked beans. Musical entertainment was on hand and Native American drumming was featured. Lila Maxwell was the winner of a brand-new kayak as part of a raffle that raised $500. In all, FSCW president Karen Tyler said, 212 people attended and, in addition to the $500 raised in the raffle, another $915 was collected for meal ticket sales (cooks and those who brought dishes ate free). ‘It was awesome, just a great turnout,’ said Tyler, who thanked the many vendors and the wealth of community support. ‘Everyone was really happy with it.’
