   The Chattahoochee County Historic Preservation Society (CCHPS) is pleased to announce the results of the Annual Chili Cook-Off and Cornbread Competition, which was held in the historic Rosenwald schoolhouse in Cusseta on Saturday, March 26.
   Chili contestants were: Theresa Berry, Pam Burgamy, Tim Crenshaw, Pat Lavis, Hank Lynch, Rob Marion, Gavin Proffit, Mandi and Don Myers, and Nancy Tatom. The contestants gave their yummy entries original names such as "Southern Spice", "PaPa Buddy Chili", and "Gavin's Wicked Good Chilli."
   Cornbread contestants were: Pam Burgamy, Pat Lavis, Hank Lynch, Rob Marion, and Gary Proffit.   
   The brave souls serving the event as judges were Richard Cox, Marilyn Hauck, Bonnie Horner, Del Johnson, and Robert Moore. After tasting all the cornbread, and then all the chili, it may have been "Tums for the tummy" time for them.
   The chili Grand Prize winner was Rob Marion, and the cornbread Grand Prize winner was Doyle Weekley.
   A lunch of chili, cornbread, chili dogs, and hot dogs with all the "fixins" was enjoyed by all present, while visiting together.
   Afterward, various prizes were raffled. Sandra Weekley won the most popular raffle ticket, which was a prize for two free meals at the Texas Roadhouse.
   The CCHPS very much appreciates and thanks: Sarah Morgan and the Texas Roadhouse, the judges, contestants, volunteers, donors, visitors, and The Journal newspaper.
