Dear Editor:

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who braved the cold wintry weather Nov. 14 to support our local military families at the first Military Share Chili Cook-Off

There were 25 participants competing in the cook-off which raised over $1,700. It was very difficult selecting a winner.

We would like to thank the following sponsors: Shade Gap Sportsman Club, Standing Stone Pressure Washing, Orbisonia True Value, Sandy Ridge Markets, We Be Cheffin, The Roast Post, Standing Stone VFW Post 1754, Defiant Distillery and Marco’s Munchies.

Thank you volunteers: Candy Whitsel, Ashley Skopic, Greg Pine and Dave and Andrea Smith.

Thank you judges: Scott Walls, Dave Cassatt, Jeff Thomas, Jen McMullen, Bob McMullen, Martina Crouse and Todd Cornelius.

A big thank you to Andrea Speck and Jen McMullen for putting this event together.

See you next year.
