Saturday September 7, Chilli cook off surprise winner
There was a surprise winner at the Trinity fall Fair chilli cook off, rank outsider Rev Musa Daba a recent import from New Zealand claimed the Golden Spoon, although with characteristic modesty he deferred to wife Lavidia who actually runs the kitchen in their home. The sun shone on a warm autumn day, as hundreds flocked to this annual event, which includes a bouncy castle, horse drawn wagon rides, face painting, popcorn and cotton candy in addition to the popular chilli and cookie competition. It takes over fifty volunteers to set up and run the sideshows, manage parking and keep serving hot dogs, all wearing bright red T’s donated by coordinator Shirley Petit’s son’s marketing business. In truth, everyone ended as a winner on this bright and sunny day. Children were happy, parents relaxed, volunteers busy and the bemused parent who asked where to pay was delighted to find that it was all free, a faith gift from Trinity church to the community.
