Democrats hold annual Chili Supper and Cookoff

By John Porco

Special to The PREVIEW

The Archuleta County Democratic Party is sponsoring the annual Chili Supper and Cookoff tomorrow night, Oct. 3.

The occasion has been a local tradition for more than a decade. The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Ross Aragon Community Center. Tickets are $9 for adults and $4 for children under 12.

In addition to a variety of chili with all the trimmings, we will have salad, cornbread from Pagosa Baking Company and ice cream sundaes. A cash bar will be available.

Featured speakers will be Abel Tapia, candidate for the 3rd Congressional District; State Rep. Mike McLachlan; and County Commissioner Clifford Lucero. Secretary of state candidate Joe Neguse has been invited to join by conference call. Campaign materials will be available. All proceeds will benefit the party and its candidates. It is not too late to enter your favorite chili recipe.

If you want to donate chili or other food items, volunteer to assist or have questions, contact Sue Yalom at 731-1091 or Becky Herman at 903-0788. Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there.
