"I have probably cooked over 50,000 brats in my lifetime," says Marj Hiner.
Not for herself - she's accomplished that feat by working at the American Business Women's Association (ABWA) Brat Tent since its inception during the 1984 Heritage Days festival.
Hiner, who was the chairman of the Heritage Days steering committee that year, says the idea came from a desire to do something new.
