Peebles Lions Club president, Marie Palmer, announced last week that the Lions will host a Chili Cook Off, Craft Show and Thanksgiving Food Drive on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 10 am – 4 pm, at the Lions Building at 175 Charlotte Avenue in Peebles,located next to the summer youth ball diamond. Admission is free. Event proceeds will be used towards Thanksgiving dinner baskets for needy families and elderly shut-ins.
The event will feature the first annual Chili Cook Off. Everyone is encouraged to enter their best classic, spicy or unusual chili recipe in a crockpot. A prize will be awarded for first and second in each category and one overall winner receives a $25 Walmart Gift Card. The cost is $5 per entry and guests can purchase a bowl of chili with crackers or sample each chili and cast a vote.
A craft show will be held inside featuring holiday crafters and artisans. During our event local Boy Scouts will meet at your car and help carry in your non-perishable food donations. The Lions will package and deliver boxes of food to local families and the elderly before Thanksgiving Day. Additionally, a 50/50 drawing will be held and ticket holders need not be present to win.
