The One Millionth Chicken Dinner has been sold! With the first dinner sold in 1952, Versailles Poultry Days sold its One Millionth Dinner Saturday shortly after 5:00pm. Ryan Stoneberger of Columbus purchased this dinner and was presented with gifts including a trip for two to Las Vegas from Zechar Bailey Funeral Homes, a supply of Platinum Chicken dinner tickets from Nelsons, and a One Year supply of MikeSells snacks.

This Ohio State graduate, originally from Cincinnati, wasn’t held back by a rain shower and in his raincoat stood in line for that delicious chicken dinner. Along with his fiancĂ© this is Ryan’s second year traveling to Versailles to complete in the Ultimate frisbee tournament.
