Knights of Columbus Council 7014 hosted its annual law enforcement chili supper which drew a good crowd, at least until a major highway accident five miles away, a half hour into the event, called a substantial number of those present into duty. (See page 1A).

The KC Hall was also the site of the first combined police-fire department awards ceremony and banquet on Saturday. (See photos and coverage, page 1B).
