Seven chilis, prepared by staff members were served, with judges picking the best.

While they were making their evaluations, residents got in line and began choosing from the selections.

Judges for the event were Mike McKenzie, Ironton Municipal Judge Kevin Waldo, Kat Rudolph and Frank Wilson. 

The winning chili was by Tammy Gill, the facility’s activities director, who also won for best table decorations.
