Free chili lunch at United Church of Sandwich Feb. 12

American Legion Post 111 held its fifth annual chili cook-off Feb. 19 at its 101 W. Fourth St. St. facility in Newton. In addition to serving bowls of hot chili to guests, the cook-off acted as a fundraiser for the American Legion. Proceeds from the cook-off will directly benefit repairs to the American Legion's roof and parking lot.

Homemade chili, cornbread and dessert will be served. The church is located at 512 Lions Road in Sandwich, across from Sandwich High School. For information, call 815-786-9243 or visit
