Hundreds of library supporters filled the Tonto Apache Community Center Saturday during the annual "Taste of Rim Country" chefs' extravaganza.
"It was a wonderful evening for everybody," said Payson Library Director Terry Morris. "The food was absolutely wonderful. The chefs were top of the line." The event, co-hosted by The Library Friends of Payson and the Payson Roundup, raised more than $10,000 toward the much-needed library expansion project. Ticket holders enjoyed a wide range of hors d'oeuvres made by premier chefs of Rim Country.
