chili13COSHOCTON – Four participants vied for cash prizes in the first Coshocton High School choir chili cook-off contest that was held Feb. 23 in the high school cafeteria.

Rachel Geary was the winner. The participants, pictured from left, were Brenda Roberts, The Word Worship Center, Kristen Binggeli and Geary.

The event was held to raise funds for the choir to travel and perform at Gettysburg this spring. Organizers were hoping to serve 120 people, but close to 250 tickets were actually sold.

“I’m very happy,” said Michael Blowers, director of choral studies and activities at the high school. “I think the people here so far are happy and we want them to leave that way so they will come back next year. We’ve already talked about making this better next year and think we’ve laid the groundwork for a bigger and better event.”

Twenty corporate sponsors, along with McDonalds who donated refreshments for the event, also helped make it a success.

“Next year we are going to expand,” Blowers said. “We will put more time into it and get more people involved.”

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
