Gather your ingredients, pull out the pots and pans, and put your chili-making skills to the test! Join us Sunday, March 4th at 6:00 pm for some fellowship and friendly competition, all for a good cause. Here’s how it works…to be included in the competition, bring your favorite chili. We’ll sample all the chili recipes, and vote for our favorites with financial contributions. The chili that earns the most, wins! We also need toppings, sides and desserts. So, even if you decide not to compete, you can add to the meal. Drinks will be provided. All proceeds go towards our food-related missions.

Our entertainment for the evening will feature Pillerkaar Estonian folk dancers, who will perform dances from Estonia and the region and then invite attendees to join in some group dances.  They will also explain about how Estonia and its two Baltic neighbors are Latvia and Lithuania are celebrating 100 years of independence in 2018.
