The Chili Cook Off was sick, dude!

Wow! The Chili Cook Off was a smashing success! St. John's is a very cool church, with really cool people who support the youth program! We are so blessed!

The night was an absolute blast. Thanks to everyone for coming out, and for those of you who weren't able to join us...too bad for you because you really missed out! Great food and good people coming together for fellowship and fun...this was a really awesome intergenerational event that will become a St. John's tradition.

Thanks to all who helped with preparation, set up and clean up...without you we wouldn't have pulled it off. Special thanks to Cliff Moore, Ann Ruderman, all who helped in some type of capacity, and all of our contestants.
