Fueling The Fire

By Simone Wichers -Voss.

It was the perfect cold night for a big bowl of hot, comforting chili. Instead of keeping people away, cold temperatures and freezing rain kept the people attending the Meridian Fire Department chili supper fundraiser inside the Meridian Civic Center Feb. 11, and they kept the cash flowing. The place was packed, people were engaged in lively conversation, the hearty chili was excellent, fun door prizes were given out regularly, the stretch raffle items were fun and Tom Henderson’s management of the live auction was entertaining as usual.
