Lowber VFC will holds its first chili cook-off on March 16.

Lowber Volunteer Fire Company will hold its inaugural “Chili Cook-Off in the Yough Valley” from noon-4 p.m. March 16 at its hall and club, 386 Lowber Road.

A $1 admission fee entitles visitors to sample chili created by 16 cooks. The admission fee also qualifies as one People’s Choice Award vote, planners say.

A panel of judges will determine who takes home first place trophies in the categories of: first responders; businesses and restaurants; and open — for individuals and nonprofits.

The People’s Choice trophy will be awarded based on taste testers’ votes.

The event is all-ages, and the Fireman’s Club will be open for those over 21 to enjoy beer with their chili.

Proceeds benefit the Lowber VFC Flood Recovery Fund, according to planners.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
