A chili cooking contest is planned for Saturday, August 10, in downtown Eastport. This won’t be just any chili contest, however; it is the CASI (Chili Appreciation Society International) Maine State Chili Championship.
Competitive chili cook Jenny Windsor and her husband Jack, fairly new residents of Alexander, attended a small chili cookoff in Calais last fall. It was that event that inspired Jenny to organize this competition that raises funds for local charities.
