Members of the community line up to sample the different types of chili.

"The turnout was wonderful and was more than we had anticipated coming." said Fire Board member Annette Beavers. Commissioner Linda Heath was present and enjoyed a bowl. There is talk of this becoming an annual event, and questions were asked about next year.

The Laramie County Fire District #6 use to put on a pancake breakfast during Burns Days, however, with the cancelling of the Burns Days by the Village of Burns, the Laramie County Fire District #6 has been looking for new ways to fund programs and get awareness out there about the department.

Children were given tours of the fire trucks and rescue trucks. They were allowed to put on gear to see what all the firemen have to wear, and how much it weighs.

Whitney Vasquez was the winner for this year's chili cook off.
