The Hartwick Historical Society will be hosting its annual Chili Contest on Sunday, March 12th, 1-3 p.m. at the Hartwick Community Center on Co. Hwy 11, Hartwick. For a suggested donation of $5, participants can taste all the chili and then get a bowl of your favorite with corn bread and a beverage. Participants will vote for their favorite. The chili with the most votes wins the "People's Choice Award." There will be professional judging of the various chili as well by local business owners Roger Davidson (Council Rock Brewery) and Alexandra Gunther (Mel's 22). There will be local musicians providing music too! Proceeds may be used to improve cemetery signage.
