It certainly wasn’t Schmeckfest as usual, but there was some semblance of “normal” on the Freeman Academy campus Friday afternoon, March 20, as an improvised version of Freeman’s big “festival of tasting” unfolded. Volunteers like Loren Tschetter and his granddaughter, Jazzlyn, assembled at the school’s maintenance building to sell sausage and other Schmeckfest Country Kitchen items drive-up style. Vehicles lined the perimeter of the Freeman Academy parking lot to purchase and pick up their items as though they were going through a fast food drive-up window. Sales took place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and will again today, March 21, as well as March 27 and 28, when the 62nd Schmeckfest was scheduled to take place. All other activities, including the production of “Matlida the Musical,” are hold in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Orders for food being sold out of the maintenance building can be placed online at
