BONNERS FERRY — The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3326 hosted their third annual chili cook-off competition to benefit the many charitable causes the VFW Post conducts year-round.

Winners of the annual VFW chili cook-off include Lori Werder for best cornbread, Kari Apo for best regular chili and Tom Chaney for best hot chili.

Chaney stated a vital part of his spicy chili is the slow cook process he conducts to blend all the flavors and spices.

When asked if the chili was the hottest, Chaney jokingly said it wasn’t the hottest he has made.

The VFW chapter will continue to produce fundraisers and events to benefit the community.

In a post made by the VFW Post 3326 it states, "we hope to grow and continue to do more fun events to enable us to support our Veterans and Community."
