The Taste of Muhlenberg event is hosted by the Rotary Club of Muhlenberg. The Rotary Club is a nonprofit organization that has annual fundraising events and service projects. The funds raised are then donated into the local community benefiting; 4-H Backpack Program, Family Resource Center, Special Olympics, high school scholarships, Opportunity Center, Bremen Park, Wellness Center, High School Culinary Arts, High School Band, Lu Ray Park and the 911 Memorial at the Court House.
This year’s event took place on April 29th at the Muhlenberg High School’s West Campus. It was even bigger and better than last year’s event, having around 500 in attendance. Participants included Pizza Plus, Shae’s Sno Shack, El Bracero, Arby’s, Brothers BBQ, Casey’s General Store, Crossroads Cafe, Gray’s Front Porch, Huddle House, MCHS Culinary, Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital Cafe, Ole South BBQ and Pelilire Catering.
Muhlenberg Job Corps looks forward to getting a corporate table every year to help support the local community. Armand Planter said, “The jazz band that was playing during the event, really helped usher in the atmosphere for the evening.”
