Lakewell House to host chili coookoff


— By CLINT FOSTER



Chili, music and hometown heroes. The Mineral Wells community will have the opportunity to get a healthy helping of all three at Lakewell House’s  Hometown Heroes Chili Cook-Off.

Members of the Mineral Wells Police Department and Mineral Wells Fire Department will be on hand at the retirement home from 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, and go head-to-head in a classic chili cook-off competition.

Whatever bowls of meaty goodness these hometown heroes produce will be judged by Justin Frazell of 95.9 FM, “The Ranch,” as well as Texas country artists Steve Helms and Michael Padgett.

Because no chili cook-off is complete without live music, singer/songwriter Cody Riley and his band will also be at Lakewell House that afternoon to play a set throughout the event. Lakewell House’s Resident Sales Manager Denise Castillo said there will also be a drawing for door prizes.

“This is a great way to bring the community together and have a great time,” said Castillo, who has organized multiple successful community events at the retirement home recently.
