If you love to eat Chili and play 42, you just might be a Texan! Karon Weatherman knows these are perennial favorites of local Senior Citizens, so she  blended them into this year’s exciting Fall Festival activities.

Plan to enjoy all-you-can-eat Chili on Tuesday October 24 at 12 noon at the Sr’s Center.  It’s free!  Sixteen crock-pot cooks will be serving their chili until it’s all gone while judges taste each entry. Winners will be announced and trophies and prizes awarded.

Then at 1pm on Saturday October 28, plan to play 42 at the annual Earl W. Martin 452 Tournament, also at the Seniors Center. Tables will be provided for 30 teams, with dominoes also provided. Cash prizes  will be awarded to the top three teams. Before the deadline of October 27, cost to enter the contest is $10 person. On the day of the contest, cost will be $25 per team.  Spectators are welcome as space permits.

The Seniors Center is located in Sulphur Springs at 105 MLK Drive, and is open daily with activities for persons age 50 and older. Phone Director Karon Weatherman at 903-885-1661.
