Hundreds indulge in Trenton City Stew
TRENTON, Tenn. — More drivers than usual saw blue lights in Trenton Wednesday — but they weren’t necessarily getting tickets. They were likely just invited to take part in Trenton’s annual City Stew. As is the custom on “Stew Day,” officers pull over drivers and encourage them to take part in the free meal. City leaders say it’s a way to have a little fun. “We get to see people that maybe we don’t get to see very often during the year that come out and have a stew with us, and so we just enjoy doing it,” Trenton Mayor Tony Burriss said. “It’s a fun thing.” Forty gallons of stew were served Wednesday to about 300 people.
