CB logoJanuary brings two things that I love, NFL playoff games and the Hope Chili Bowl. I’m particularly excited about the NFL playoffs this year because my Dallas Cowboys are in the playoffs!

Dave and I had only lived here a few months when we went to our first Hope Chili Bowl event and were completely blown away with how fun it was. We got little sample cups of all the different kinds of chili and enjoyed tasting everyone’s take on one of our favorite foods. They have some great prizes, so if you think that you make a mean pot of chili, you should enter.

Make sure that you save room for pie, though! We enjoyed the pie almost as much as we enjoyed the chili!

The deadline to get your nominations in for Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year, as well as Educators of the Year is quickly approaching. You can pick up a form at the Chamber office, or download it from our website or from the Facebook event. Forms must be filled out and turned in by 5pm on Friday, January 16.
