On September 16, we tried 8 different chili recipes and voted on the best one. Last year's champ Carol Swanson took the year off to make sure someone else had a chance for the title. This year, Joyce Macfarlane's chili took first place. We're grateful for all the folks who donated a recipe of their best batch and for those who put on the event. The proceeds raised will be given to the Facility Enhancement fund to put finishing touches on the back of the sanctuary.
Try Joyce's chili at your house, now that the weather has turned to fall!

Judy Webb shows off the winning doll.
...the Scottish Lassie. Dressed by Ann Hamilton and named "Heather" after her daughter, this doll was the winner in the congregational vote for best dressed doll. The dolls were displayed on August 26 in Fellowship Hall, where worship also took place during the final phases of construction in the sanctuary. We were able to offer a blessing to the dolls, those who made their beautiful clothes and the children who will receive them this Christmas. Goodfellow Dolls are given out each holiday season to needy children in the area so that they can enjoy a wonderful Christmas gift, made with love.
