3rd Annual Chili Competition - Recap

[caption id="attachment_158" align="aligncenter" width="630" caption="Chili Row - Our 2011 Contestants"]Chili Row[/caption]

This past weekend John W. Barkley Lodge conducted its 3rd annual chili competition. There were twelve crock pots fighting for first and second place. It was a great time with great food and great fun! We raised over $400 for the charities to which Barkley Lodge contributes.

First place this year went to our Junior Deacon, Bro. Bill Hill. Second place was awarded to our Senior Deacon, Bro. R. Scott Brochhagen.

Thanks to all of our contestants for their time and efforts in making this event a big success. Another thanks to everyone that came to enjoy the chili and help us raise money for these important charities!
