CCEC Family Wins Lodge Cookware Sweepstakes
Co-op members Paul and Jessica Zado will be hitting the road in their new campey, taking along a Lodge Manufacturing cast iron cookware package they won by entering a sweepstakes in June’s issue of Carolina Country magazine.
The Zados live in Cape Carteret with their two children, Hannah and Jackson. Mr. Zado is a graduate of West Carteret High School and has served in the U.S. Coast Guard for 25 years. He was away on a buoy tender when the family was presented the prize, but was the envy of his shipmates when he told them what he had won.
“He’s the one that does most of the cast iron cooking,” Mrs. Zado said. “He was excited. That’s his thing.”
The cookware set, which is valued at close to $470, included a six-quart Dutch oven, 60-inch tripod, cast iron trivet, cast iron skillet, a chuck wagon dinner bell, charcoal starter, cookbook and more.
Lodge Manufacturing was founded in 1896 in South Pittsburg, TN, and is one of America’s oldest cookware companies in continuous operation.
Carteret-Craven Electric Co-op publishes its newsletter, “Member News,” in Carolina Country each month.
“We are pleased that one of our members won the sweepstakes,” said CCEC Communications Director Lisa Galizia. “What’s even better is that this family has all the equipment they need for cooking out when they go camping.”
