The Church Point volunteer fire department held a Chili Cook-off on Saturday.
The community enjoyed a public tasting, along with a silent auction.
Teams were judged on the best decorated booth and in three different chili categories: original, authentic and a special fire department category. Eleven teams participated, including the Mire, Branch, and Church Point volunteer fire departments.
Fundraisers like this one are important for volunteer fire departments, who most of the time must come up with their own funds in order to operate better for the communities they serve.
