Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

The McCord’s Cross­roads Home­mak­ers Club will host a Chili Cook-Off on Satur­day, Jan. 30, from 4 p.m. un­til 7 p.m. at the Hopewell Com­mu­nity Cen­ter at McCord’s Cross­roads, 7290 County Road 16, Cen­tre.

Any­one in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing the com­pe­ti­tion is en­cour­aged to con­tact Lynn Petty by Jan. 29.

Con­tes­tants should plan to de­liver pre­pared chili in a large heated con­tainer to the com­mu­nity cen­ter at 2 p.m. on Jan. 30. Judg­ing will take place at 3 p.m., be­fore the doors open to the pub­lic at 4 p.m.

All pro­ceeds from the Chili Cook-Off will ben­e­fit the restora­tion of the for­mer Hopewell Church build­ing.

Club pres­i­dent Edna Jen­nings re­ports, “The home­mak­ers club is com­mit­ted to com­plet­ing the Hopewell restora­tion pro­ject in 2016, as the build­ing is in its 100th year. With the ex­te­rior be­ing re­stored, the club now fo­cuses on the in­te­rior sur­faces. We are so close to reach­ing our goal, but fund rais­ing is crit­i­cal to see­ing the pro­ject through to com­ple­tion. We hope the com­mu­nity will come out to the Chili Cook-Off and the events that are planned over the next few months to lend their sup­port to the Hopewell pro­ject.”

Doors open at 4 p.m. for the Chili sup­per that in­cludes chili, corn­bread, home­made dessert and drink for a sug­gested do­na­tion of $7. Or, a $10 do­na­tion pack­age in­cludes the sup­per, raf­fle tick­ets, and sam­pling of com­pe­ti­tion chili for peo­ple’s choice award.

The home­mak­ers club has planned an af­ter­noon of good fel­low­ship, food, door prizes, raf­fles and en­ter­tain­ment – all while help­ing a good cause. Con­tact event co­or­di­na­tor Lynn Petty, at 706-7671612 for more in­for­ma­tion.
