It was no easy decision, but it was one that had to be made.

Judges Kim Hutton, Rick Fairbairn, Judy Phillips and The Morning Star’s own Richard Rolke faced a difficult challenge with so many excellent entries in both the traditional and non-traditional butter tart categories.

This year’s Best Homemade Butter Tart Contest at the Lumby Butter Tart Festival Sept. 9 was again sponsored by Rogers Foods of Armstrong, which supplied gifts for first and second place winners, ribbons for all winners and gift baskets for a draw.

The winners:

Traditional Category:

1st — Randy McDermid

2nd — Charlotte Blanchard

3rd — Barbara Quibell

Non-Traditional Category:

1st — Kitty Hertgers

2nd — Judy Farago

3rd — Tina-Marie Christian
