True Grit Chili Cook-Off proclaimed a success

What a great time we had at our True Grit Chili Cook-Off!

We had eight contestants and a total of 45 participants.

The chili was wonderful. Our first place winner was Sonburst Graphics, second place was Sherd Bartlebaugh, third place was Richard Millsap, and People’s Choice went to Brad Clinkenbeard.

Thanks to all who supported and participated in our first chili cook-off.

The funds raised by the event will support one of the entertainers lined up for the Summer Reading Program.
