What is it with Chili Feed/Fund Raisers lately? It is that fall makes us think of hot foods like chili? Or maybe that we have some excellent chili makers in the community? Last evening the Fire Dept. had a chili feed/ATV Raffle. There was a large crowd for the raffling off of 8 ATV’s. Kevin Reinowski told me they cost $43,000. The winners were: Darlene Axtman, Harvey; Kyle Bleecker, Lisbon; Jeremy Patzer, Harvey; Harry Detling, Manfred; Celine Fetch, Sykeston; Becker Const., Anamoose; & Michael Oclair, Mohall.
The Firemen also had 2 tables where they sold chances of merchandise donated by businesses. Fire-chief Bent Weninger said the Fire Dept. has made $55,000 in their 4 years of holding raffles. (Click on pictures to enlarge.)
