People in the Ballplay community of Tellico Plains are ready to “ramp” up spring activities.
Capitalizing on the short availability of ramps, the Ballplay Ruritan Club will be hosting the Eighth Annual Ramp Festival on Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Friends Meeting of Ballplay Fellowship Hall and grounds. The event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Ruritan Club and proceeds from the event will help the organization with community projects.
The ramp dinner will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes ramps, fried potatoes, pinto beans, corn bread, bacon, scrambled eggs, a drink and a dessert. A meal ticket for an adult is $10 and children ages 12 and under can eat for $5. A child-friendly meal of a hotdog and chips will also be available, if desired.
