Annual chili cook-off warms crowd, helps elementary school

The Rimbey Elementary School chili cook-off proved to be a bright spot in an unseasonably cold and rainy day.

The Rimbey Elementary School chili cook-off proved to be a bright spot in an unseasonably cold and rainy day.

Held last Friday at Pas Ka Poo Park, the chili cook-off attracted a good crowd, who showed up despite the weather.

Principal Jodi Bramfield said she was pleased with the turnout, noting there were 10 pots of chili entered and $550 raised for school improvements.

“It was good that lots of people showed up, even though they didn’t stay as long, no doubt, because of the weather.”

Rimbey Elementary School won first place at the cook-off, taking back the trophy from Rimbey Subway, last year’s winner.

Bramfield credited the win with a ‘secret ingredient’ which she refused to indulge, although she did admit that the students themselves with their enthusiastic school spirit provided the real ‘secret ingredient.’

Close behind the elementary school in garnering winning votes was RCMP officer Tyler Hagel and winning third place was ATB.

Hotdogs, hamburgers and water are also sold at the chili cook-off. All proceeds will go to Rimbey Elementary School improvements.
