New Richmond fills up at 8th Annual Chili Feed
Community members old and young alike turned out in big numbers Saturday for the New Richmond Fire Department's eighth annual Chili Feed fundraiser. Everyone had the opportunity to taste 20 homemade chili recipes or if your stomach was not up to the challenge, hot dogs were on the menu as well.
Monty Weeks parlayed an entry that combined his special recipe with his brother's to come away with first place in the hot category and the Judge's Choice Award for best overall chili.
Money raised from donations, entry fees, a silent auction and raffles will be put toward advanced training and the purchase of safety and communications gear for the department.
The fire department would like to thank all of the sponsors for their contributions, the judges for their expertise and community members for their generous support.
