VANDALIA — The Seventh Annual Chili Cook-off at VFW Post 9582 in Vandalia was a tasty success. Sixteen individuals competed with a variety of chilis, each with its own style. The judges this year were Tipp City’s Sam & Ethel Restaurant owner Keith Long, Mark Long, Ben Turzynski and Ray Jones. The VFW canteen was brimming with customers in attendance to get a taste of each chili being judged.
