Local Boy Scout Leader Bill Johnson said this is the 24th year for the chile supper which was the idea of one of the scouting mothers. Scouts get a commission for selling tickets and the money goes in the scouting account for use in going to camp, uniforms, or other scouting activities.  The money also helps with the cost of scout trips, badges, entry fees and a portion goes towards Troop 57’s Eagle Scout Scholarship Program.  This year, the menu includes homemade chili, all-beef hot dogs, dessert, and a drink. The cost is $6.00 for adults and $3.00 for children ages 2-12.  Carry-outs will be available.  For more information, call Bill Johnson at 664-0958.
