I’d particularly like to draw your attention to a local Ephrata submission… presented by the Ephrata VFW… it’s called 3Bs Chili (Beef, Bison and Boniface). It was the winner of our local VFW’s Chili Cook-off, and the recipe is OURS!!! So Rebecca will be cooking up 15 gallons and will be on hand to help serve.

indoor carnival for all ages. It features games, contests, and other
