Faces at the Fair: David Holderman, volunteer at the Goshen Noon Kiwanis Club

    The Goshen Noon Kiwanis Club is challenging fairgoers at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair to finish a one-pound burger, but David Holderman said it's not the biggest burger he's ever served.

    There’s a yellow sign on the side of the Goshen Noon Kiwanis Club’s cafeteria at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair, challenging fairgoers to finish a one-pound burger.

    But volunteer David Holderman said that’s not the biggest burger they’ve served up at the fair over the years. He’s seen truckers at the cafeteria finish one-pounders in 15 minutes and says the real challenge is with the two- to three-pounders.

    “I’ve served five three-pounders over the years, and no one’s been able to tackle that one,” Holderman said. “They usually turn green and say, ‘that’s enough.’”

    That’s usually after an hour-and-a-half of trying, Holderman said.

    He usually adds a pound-and-a-half of cheese to the three-pounders as well.

    “It makes it a pretty filling dinner.”
