Coco Capsule

October 26, 2011

Last month’s Chili Cook-off at Woody’s Bar and Grill was a resounding success, with over $1,000 raised for Coco Animal Rescue and Education, or CARE. Special thanks go to The Posse for providing live music for the event, which attracted more than 25 entrants representing both local restaurants and teams of individual cooks from the area. First prize went to Papi’s Chili and second prize to the Chili Palmers, with Green Angel coming in close behind.

With the holidays just around the corner, one group is already actively working on benefiting local children. The Sardinal Backpack Program collects money to buy school uniforms and supplies as well as shoes for poor children whose parents cannot afford such items. Each backpack costs $60, and donations for all or part of one are welcome. Contact Gary Lindquist at 2672-0023, 8869-7330 or gary_lindquist@hotmail.com.

Many thanks to all those civic workers, utility workers and volunteers from all parts of our community who have worked, often under difficult conditions, to repair services and keep our towns working during these past weeks of heavy rain.
