Homemade dill pickles bring in thousands for telethon over the years*

By Correne Martin

Delightfully sour and tangy, cool and crunchy, the perfect snack or sandwich topper—now that’s a good dill pickle.
Consider yourself lucky if you’ve ever savored Rose Stram’s dill pickles. Labeled as “prize-wining” by her family, Rose’s jars of gherkins are sensational, to say the least. Just take it from this privileged taste tester. 
Rose’s pickles have been a most desired item at the telethon for the last 30 years, it’s realistic to believe her homemade pickles have generated around $30,000 for the Eagles’ Heart and Cancer Telethon.  This year, the telethon will be held on January 29, starting at 5PM at Bluff View Middle  School.
Stram's Precious jar of pickles will be up for auction. This year, as in last year, the auction will be online. The bidding for these extra crunchy pickles is sure to be a hot item. With Rose Stram, passing, the pickles are truly, "one of a kind".
