Firefighters to compete in chili competition

Feb 07, 2014

Chili seems to be the stereotypical meal of firefighters. But, who makes the best?

The Wareham Fire Department is competing in the 10th Annual Fire Fighter’s ‘Chili Challenge’ in Hyannis on March 2 from 11:45 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The department is relying on local Wareham residents to come out and support their team so they can bring the title of “People’s Choice” back to Wareham.

With 17 department teams competing, this will be no easy feat!

The event will take place at Hyannis Resort and Conference Center, 35 Scudder Ave. in Hyannis, and benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The event will also feature live music, cash bar, ‘kids corner’, raffles, door prizes and more.

Will Onset Fire also be competing in the Chili cookoff? If we are paying to have 2 Fire Departments and at least one being paid to test recipes we should get 2 chances to win. Why is it that the taxpayer only gets heartburn.

Not to break your sphere but....."We" are not paying for two fire departments.  If you live in the Wareham Fire District you only pay for the the Wareham District and if you live in the Onset District you pay only for that District.  Yes there are two fire departments but taxpayers pay only for the fire department that services their area of town.  Not the most efficient system, but "we" are not paying for two fire departments.
