Chili Cookoff Cancellation

Chili logo

We would like to thank you for your interest in our planned Chili Cookoff which was scheduled for Sunday, April 3rd. We have coordinated quite a few moving parts to make our chili cookoffs possible.  Unfortunately, we were not able to attract the necessary support on some of these moving parts and we are cancelling our Chili Cookoff.  We will be refunding the money our sponsors, teams and vendors have paid toward our event. 

We are very grateful for the support of the community for our five years of chili cookoff events. We would like to thank:

  • the thousands of people who attended
  • The many restaurants, caterers and other city licensed fod preparers who participated and supplied the chili
  • the businesses and individuals who sponsored
  • the many firemen who participated as judges
  • our Rotarians and community volunteers who donated their time and energy
  • the vendors and entertainers who participated

The Chestnut Hill Rotary Club will continue our commitment to support our local community as well as international service and Rotary’s motto “Service Above Self” and welcome all of you to work with us as we do.

All are welcome to visit us at our meetings!

Exciting speakers!

Enjoy breakfast with us 7:30-8:30, Wednesday mornings
