The MVFD chili supper event is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. until sold out. The evening will also include live and silent auctions and live music. Winners will be drawn at 7 p.m. for prizes to be given away. Tickets for those are on sale now from any MVFD member.
Prices for the chili supper are $ 6 for adults and $ 3 for children 12 and under. Prices includes drink and dessert as well and meals are available for dine in or carry out. Details are still being worked out for the Lions Club pancake supper. The event is scheduled for Saturday, March 12 at the civic center.
