Habitat for Humanity's Fifth Annual Chili Cook-off and bake sale will be held on the courthouse lawn on Friday, October 24th from 10:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
According to Tecia Puckett Pryor, eight teams have already committed to participate including State Farm Insurance Agent Jackie Smith, Bradley Printing, the Board of Education, DeKalb Community Bank, the Courthouse Crew, Edgar Evins State Park, Tom Janney and Associates, and the Chamber of Commerce. Organizers hope to have at least fifteen teams.
Teams will be honored for having the "Best Chili" and the "Best Decorated" booth.
To enter a team, pick up an application from Register of Deeds Jeff McMillen at the courthouse, at the law office of Sue Puckett-Jernigan next to Griffin's Fruit Market, or at Bradley Printing.
You may purchase a bowl for $5.00 and enjoy all the chili you care to eat. Take out will also be available.
