No loafing around
David M. Fitzpatrick
Residents of Winterberry Heights worked to create a 50-foot sandwich in the Great Hoagie Challenge. The event was sparked after another facility owned by Hawthorn Retirement Group built a 15-foot sandwich. The official measurement of this sub was 55 feet 4 inches. A good time, and later a good meal, was had by the 92 residents and about 50 staff, who challenge other Hawthorn facilities, and anyone local, to beat their record. (They have a ways to go to beat the world record sub, done with a single continuous loaf of bread in 2004, which was 2,081 feet.)
