Year by year after the pandemic, the Belgrade Lions has built up the annual chili cook-off contest as a fundraiser for the B-B-E Area Food Shelf.

This year, with a total of eight different parties providing chili, the Belgrade Lions was thrilled to have 93 individuals participate in the contest. They raised over $200 in loose donations to go with the $465 raised from the contest participants. Once all donations are tallied, a final announcement will be made in an upcoming newspaper issue with what this event raised for the food shelf.

First place was earned by Team Robert and Kristen Pattinson; in second was Arlen Anderson and his daughter Michelle; and in third place was the Brooten Fire Department. The traveling trophy for the fire departments was won by Paynesville.

The attached video features part of the awards ceremony, which was led by Belgrade Fire Chief Tony Nemmers.
