As always, a wide range of chilis were entered in the contest. These included several kinds of regular chili with beef and beans, two kinds of white chicken chili, and even a meat-less, pumpkin chili. The club started serving at 11:00 a.m. and by late afternoon, everything was gone. Of course, no Math and Science club fundraiser would be complete without music provided by Uwe Conrad, club sponsor. The club raised $135.00, which will be used to defray the cost of a spring field trip.
