When Texas Chili is served, there’s usually a packed house! That was true in Sulphur Springs on Thursday November 14, 2019 when the annual Crockpot Chili Contest got off to a lively start inside the Senior Citizens Center at 150 MLK Drive. Nineteen pots of chili were entered, and after the five judges turned in their scores, the top three cooks and five honorable mentions were announced. Karon Weatherman, Director of the Seniors Center, also gives credit to Murray-Orwosky Funeral Home for supplying the certificates and trophies and to cookoff sponsor East Texas Physical Therapy.

1st Place – Vickie Pickel
2nd Place – Judith Beck with Wesley House/Wesley Oaks
3rd Place – Shelby Romans with Hopkins Place
Honorable Mentions were:
Tina Cox and Terri Campbell McDow with Rock Creek
Jimmie Bell and Fay Pool
Leslie Deann Forshee with Heritage Hospice
Paula Moody
Mary Ann Stephens with Signature Dialysis

Our Judges were: Enola Gay Mathews, Mike Patterson, Tyray Demarcus Smith, Price Orwosky and Jennifer Scroggins

Thank you to everyone that cooked Chili and to everyone who helped me clean everything up!
