Smiley face

Fifteen entries of “Texas” chili were entered crock-pot style in the Senior Citizens Day Chili Classic for Fall Festival. Entries were judged, then served to local chili lovers at the Seniors’ Center at noon Tuesday October 24. The judges scored each sample of chili based on four criteria:  color, aroma, consistency and taste. The points were added up and the winners proclaimed before the audience. Besides cash prizes, trophies and certificates, the winning cooks also gained bragging rights as the best chili makers in Hopkins County. Organizer of the fun and tasty celebration is Karon Weatherman, Director of the Sr’s Center.
