Who makes the best chili? A healthy competition between surrounding Police, Fire, and EMS departments, and local Community groups, searing flavors in this fierce chili cook-off event that will ensure alarm fun, a hot time, and great bowls of savory taste. Will your favorite win? Tasters cast ballots for the winner. 

Mark your calendars! Thrive55+ Active Living Center: Powered by Groton Senior Center is having a Chili Cook Off and Scarecrow Contest on Saturday, October 16th from 4-6pm at the Center. $10/person, $5/person under 10yrs. We will be raising funds for Project Lifesaver at the event. Project Lifesaver is the premier search and rescue program used nationally and internationally by public safety agencies, and is strategically designed for "at risk" individuals who are prone to the life threatening behavior of wandering. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children with the propensity to wander due to cognitive conditions.
