Beardstown VFW Post 1239 raised $366 to split between the Clover Clan 4H club and Cub Scout den #143 during a chili/soup cookoff held at the Post on Saturday. First place for chili was awarded to Steve Fisher and Jeff Fritz took second. The soup category was won by Carol Shutts with Kathy Park placing second. On Friday, March 17, St Patrick’s day, the Post will host a bagpipe band and meal to celebrate the holiday. Festivities are scheduled to start about 5 p.m. The public is invited to attend the celebration.
