It was a bit cold as Charlie Crist was sworn in as Governor of the State of Florida on January 2, 2007.
But several hundred people were warmed up as the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association shucked, cooked and served up some hot sweet corn to attendees.
The corn was provided by Wilkinson-Cooper Produce of Belle Glade, and the culinary staff included Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association staffers Butch Calhoun, Alan Peirce, Danny Raulerson and Lisa Lochridge, along with volunteers from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
