This will be the fourth annual summer Cowley First has kicked-off a fun dining event; “Back Road Dining in Cowley County”. Once again, Cowley First-Cowley County Economic Development has teamed up with four restaurants in Cowley County to offer a chance to win a $25 dining gift certificate.

Those wishing to participate in the Back Road Dining promotion are asked to dine at the four participating restaurants where they can receive a punch card. After eating at all four establishments, their completed card will be entered into the free drawing for a chance to win a $25 dining gift certificate. You may complete the Back Road Dining circuit more than once prior to the conclusion of the promotion on September 15th, 2019.
