Norwich Lions Club Meadow Muffins Contest to be decided on Saturday, October 9th, on the Norwich green!

Over 375 plot deeds have been purchased for a chance to win $1,000 (first prize) or $500 (second prize) on Saturday, October 9th.

On the Norwich town green, at 3 pm, up to three cows will be introduced onto a grid with 500 squares in play, each randomly assigned a plot number. The first bovine to fertilize a square will determine the first-prize winner. The second deposit will determine the runner-up. Winners will be determined from among the plot deeds purchased—by cow deposit or by drawing from a hat (if necessary).

Supervising the proceedings will be three judges, drawn from Marion Cross School, who will be sworn to impartiality and committed to wise decision making, as attested to by the top hats that they will be issued.

It’s not too late for you to be a winner. You can go on line at or contact me to arrange an in-person sale.

Remember that third prize is the satisfaction that you contributed to a good cause! The net proceeds of the contest will allow the Norwich Lions Club to provide support to Upper Valley non-profit organizations through its grants process, described at
