Fletcher_State Rep. Joe Dorman is hosting a chili cook-off that will raise funds for matching grants to purchase portable generators for House District 65's rural fire departments to maintain in case of disasters, and to assist with emergency management costs. "This is an opportunity to support our local firefighter departments and help them purchase the equipment they may need in the event of a natural or man-made disaster," Dorman said. "I hope to see a great turnout there to support these local heroes."
The results of the chili cook-off will be announced at the Fletcher-Apache home game, held Friday night.
