Tickets, as always, are $5
This is the season for chili and, once again, the Keokuk Lions Club has begun preparations for their Annual Grand Lunch Chili Supper according to project chairman, Howie Sutlive.
“This is a fund-raising project for the sight-saving projects our Lions Club undertakes every year,” Sutlive explained. “We work as a team to cook and serve chili using the actual recipe from the former Grand Lunch Diner here in Keokuk. We even give you the option of beans or no beans.”
This year’s event will be held on February 1 beginning at 11 a.m. and running until 6:30 p.m. Sutlive said, “Two years ago we began holding the event at the First Christian Church. The facilities there make it much easier to prepare and serve, so we are there again this year”.
Steve Derr, Event Ticket Chair, reminded, “We will prepare large orders for pick up. It is not unusual for businesses and industries in the area to order large quantities of meals to serve to employees at the lunch hour. If you would like to put in a group order, please do it in advance so our volunteers can have enough time to prepare and package your order.”
“ Tickets can be purchased from any Lions member”, Derr said, “ and you can phone in an order by calling 319-524-6334”.
Cost of tickets remains $5 as it has been in the past.
