whoopie pie contest sponsored by the Mennonite historical society of Lancaster Pa

I thought id post this contest on Amish Stories because a lot of people have been talking about whoopie pies lately, and yours truly would be guilty of that,lol. So as the article from the Mennonite historical society says, if you find any proof that whoopie pies originated from Pennsylvania then send your evidence to the address below and win some prizes

Big Whoopie Research Contest
To settle an interstate feud over food, the Society will award two dozen home-made whoopie pies and a gift certificate for The Good Cooking Store (Intercourse, Pa.) to the researcher—young or old—who produces the most convincing evidence that the whoopie pie should be Pennsylvania’s state treat. Entries must by submitted by May 9 to The Whoopie Monster, Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, 2215 Millstream Road, Lancaster PA 17602, or e-mailed to whoopie@lmhs.org.

I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
