On May 18th, starting at 6 pm, the Sons of The American Legion will be hosting their annual Chili Cook-off at the American Legion Tom Whitmore Post #28 in Green River. Entrance into the cook-off is free and welcome to everyone, but chili entries must be submitted by 6:15 pm, with dinner commencing at 6:30 pm. No pre-registration is required; however, attendees are encouraged to notify organizers if they plan to bring chili. You can contact the Legion at (307) 871-1730 to register.

Participants will compete for titles in three categories: Best Red, Best Green, and Best Other. Each category winner will receive a $50 cash prize and earn bragging rights for a year.

Open to all, a $5 donation is requested from chili enthusiasts who wish to enjoy dinner, which helps cover the prize money.
