Registration for the fifth annual chili cook off as part of the annual Christmas Festival on Saturday, December 7 in downtown Mount Vernon is underway. All proceeds from the cook off will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Franklin County.
“With the five percent cut in food stamps, we are seeing a bigger demand placed on the local food bank,” organizer Garry Romines said. For more information, see the November 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
