Chandler Montgomery and his wife, Shauna, had a plan Saturday morning as they grabbed their cart in the Noon Optimist’s Dash for Groceries contest.
First, they planned to fill it with dog and cat food to donate to the local humane society. Unfortunately, that was against the rules. Instead, as third-place winners, the couple with three children had only one minute to grab as much produce, dairy, cereal and other items before the buzzer.
“I went for the meat,” Chandler Montgomery said.
