Any and all resident of the City of Glenn Heights are welcome to enter the bake off! Kids and Adults of any age are welcome to participate. Both inexperienced and experienced bakers are eligible to enter, but all baked goods must be made in a home kitchen. Contestants may work individually or with a team. (Prizes will be awarded to 1 member/team only, not each individual.)
Three finalists will be selected for each category. One finalist from each category, representing first place, will win a blue ribbon and a small prize package from the City of Glenn Heights. Those placing in second and third place in each category will receive ribbons representing their respective placement.

Registration is not allowed on site. Check-in is between 4:30 to 5 p.m. under the Park Pavilion located in Heritage Community Park. Registration will close 5 minutes before judging takes place.
Participants may enter any recipe and it does not need to be an original recipe created by the entrant. Recipes may come from cookbooks, magazines, websites, or any other means. Please bring a copy of your recipe. All submissions will become property of the City of Glenn Heights. (You can take your Tupperware/cookware back home following the event.) Submissions must be home cooked (not store bought).
Please do not submit anything that requires refrigeration as the event is held outside. All entries are to be submitted as a whole (complete pie, complete cake, complete loaf, etc.) or in the quantity of a half dozen or more. Participants should bring their own serving utensils (cake knife, pie server, etc). The City of Glenn Heights will provide plates, forks and napkins for the judges.
All entries are preferred to be submitted on a paper plate or recyclable container. In the case that it is not suitable for this, (ex. baked fruit pies), all containers used to submit the entry are the responsibility of the entrant. It is the entrant’s responsibility to pick up their container immediately following the announcement of winners at 7:15 p.m. All containers left afterward will be submitted to the lost and found. Neither the organizers of this event nor any representatives from the volunteer committee are in any way responsible for the distribution of your containers. In addition, all entries should be presented in a sealed container or in a new Ziploc bag or a new bag with a twist tie.
All entries must meet the requirements of the category entered. Recipes not meeting contest entry criteria will be disqualified. Entries will be judged in the following criteria:
Maximum total of 30 points are possible.
Judges are required to taste test all entries. Each judge will complete a judging sheet which will indicate each entry’s score. Each criterion will require a score of 1 to 10 dependent on that criterion. A combined score will be calculated to indicate the final scoring placement.
Selected finalists will be notified after a 45-minute judging period, representing an approximate time of 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 1st, 2019. All contestants are expected to be physically present for the announcement and accept their prize at that time. If the contestant or a representative for the contestant is not present, they are automatically disqualified and the prize will go towards the next selected entry.
Finalists will be photographed which may be used for future promotional materials for the bake off or the Family Festival and/or local news and media outlets.
Checking your blood pressure is important because it gives lets us know how hard our heart is working. High blood pressure, or Hypertension, is known as a silent killer. Meaning, your heart will continue to have to work harder to pump blood through your vessels.
The harder your heart has to work the more damage is being done. Blood pressure can be controlled with medication, exercise, diet and lifestyle changes.
There are many factors such as:
You can get a blood pressure cuff at local stores. There are two numbers involved in checking your blood pressure. The top number, the Systolic blood pressure is the pressure that your heart creates when it contracts to pump blood through out your body. The bottom number is Diastolic, which is the pressure in your vascular system when the heart is at rest. The normal range for a systolic blood pressure is 90 to 140.
All the cells in your body require oxygen to survive. The cells also require a sufficient supply of nutrients. Waste products must be removed from the cells at a rapid rate. Oxygen and nutrients are carried around the body in your blood, which is pumped by your heart.
Oxygen enters your blood stream through the lungs. Waste products such as Carbon Dioxide are eliminated through a process called Gas Exchange. Without a beating heart pumping blood through out our body we develop rapid cell damage.
Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart is no longer beating. There are several causes of cardiac arrest, such as:
When Cardiac arrest occurs, the body does not have circulating blood providing oxygen to the cells. During Cardiac Arrest the lack of flowing blooding caring oxygen causing the body's cells to die. Brain cells are very sensitive, after 4 to 5 minutes of no oxygen the brain cells begin dying leading to brain damage and death.
The purpose of CPR is for the rescuer to do the job of the heart by pumping on the victims chest. By pumping on the victims chest the rescuer helps circulate oxygenated blood throughout the body helping keep body cells alive. Use automated external defibrillator (AED) if available in a CPR situation if available.
Defibrillators administer a controlled electric shock that allow restoration of a normal rhythm. Devices such as AED will tell you when defibrillation is needed. Early recognition, effective CPR and Defibrillation increase the chance of return of spontaneous circulation in the heart. This means that the heart has began beating again.
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When this happens, part of the brain can't get blood or the oxygen it needs, so it begins to die. This kills brain cells in the area of the brain where the blockage/burst occurred.
Brain cells can't regenerate like other cells in our bodies. Once a brain cell is dead, it can't be repaired. So, early recognition is key.
Signs and symptoms include:
It is very important to realize when you could potentially be having a stroke. Survival from a stroke is improved greatly by early detection. As soon as you recognize the signs and symptoms of a stroke call 911 immediately. The longer one waits for treatment, the more irreversible brain damage is done.
Some risk factors include:
