Methodist Church to host chili burn-off

The Streetsboro United Methodist Church's UMW and UMM will host their annual chili burn-off Nov. 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the church, 8940 Route 43, Streetsboro.

Cost is $5 for adults and $4 for seniors and children ages 4 to 18. Tickets can be purchased at the door. All of the profits will be used to support the Streetsboro Community Pantry.

The event will feature returning guest master of ceremonies John Adams, who has played his bass drum at Cleveland Indians baseball games for decades.

The event needs plenty of "chili cookers" and "tasters" for the competition.

Make it a point to make a favorite batch of chili to bring or just plan to come and enjoy the food, entertainment and fellowship.
