Chili cook off for a charity

It doesn't get much better than seeing friends, eating different types of chili and donating for a worthy cause, all at the same time. The annual chili cook off raises money for Puedo Leer, a non-profit community library, in Granada. The event was packed and raised thousands of dollars for a wonderful library, in a less fortunate area of town. For those of us always connected to the internet, it might be hard to fathom that so many people around the world are not connected to the luxuries of the net. Many of those same people without internet also live without access to libraries, and with it, the information and knowledge that exists about our world. Information matters and the more educated a society becomes, the more manageable their problems become. For more information on Puedo Leer refer to this link

Janice, in the white blouse, won the people's choice award for chili.

Getting to meet others in the community is always a good thing.
