Tasty chili and pies

(Thanks to Patrick Reynolds for this article - I was away on Saturday, visting my parents in Corning.)

On Saturday, the Dryden Community Center Cafe hosted a chili cook-off for local organizations and a pie contest for individual chefs. With chilis hot and mild, meaty and vegetarian, they had something for all tastes.

The chili winners were the Historical Society, the Dryden Foreign Language Teachers, and Kiwanis. The pie winners were Laurie Poirier, Bev Babcock, and Beth Peck. Congratulations to them all, and thanks to pie judges Reba Taylor, Joseph Valentinelli, and Margaret Ryan.

The cafe planning seems to be coming along nicely. They had chairs and tables for guests to eat at, a new counter where the eventual kitchen will be, and a couch and toys at the back of the room. The performance stage got put to good use, with folk and a cappella music while people ate.

More pictures of the event can be found at the cafe's website.
