Grand Lake Fire thanks community for help with Chili Cookoff

The Grand Lake Fire Protection District would like to thank all of those who helped with the 27th Annual State Chili Cook Off held in the Grand Lake town park last Saturday. Thanks to the Sagebrush BBQ for stepping up to the plate for the third year in a row as our major sponsor and donating all of the food for the event! In addition, we truly appreciate the support from Grand Lake Brewing Company, Chili Appreciation Society, Grand County Tourism Board, Grand Lake Trailblazers, Mountain Family Center, Elmer Lanzi, and last but certainly not least, all of the volunteers and their families of the Grand Lake Fire Department. Without our volunteers this event would not be possible.

We were blessed with an incredible hail storm, which put a damper on our event this year but attendees, chili cook contestants, and Hunker Down rallied through the storm. Thank you to all who attended the event and to the community members who made donations for the Garage Sale. We are sure there are some old rubber boots that would not have sold had it not been for the storm. All proceeds of this event go directly to the Grand Lake Fire Scholarship and Community Assistance Fund. Donations to the Scholarship Fund are being accepted at: Grand Lake Fire Protection District, PO Box 1408, Grand Lake, CO 80447.
