Kiwanis chili cook off coming


This year’s Mineola Kiwanis chili cook off will be held later than usual and in a different location in response to COVID health and safety restrictions.
The cook off is set Friday, April 22 at the Mineola Civic Center. The venue will allow more spacing for cooks and more room for diners.
Another change is the name of the fundraiser. It will be called the Mineola Kiwanis First Responders Chili Cook Off. Area police, sheriff’s department, firefighters and hospital personnel are invited to enter. Call Kevin White at 903-245-8357 to enter or reserve a booth from any member of the Mineola Kiwanis Club.
Desserts will be sold by the slice and will also be auctioned. A silent auction will also be available. Tickets will be $5 at the door. Funds will go to the Mineola Kiwanis projects to benefit children.
