Chili prep

The New Castle Rural Volunteer Fire Department’s Auxiliary is holding its annual Chili Day fundraiser on Friday, and the food preparation was beginning this morning. According to Richard Powell, pictured on the left, 213 pounds of ground beef will be used to provide enough chili for the all-you-can-eat event that will be held at the First Baptist Church on North Rosser Street from 10:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tickets are $6 today and $7 at the door.
