They needed a way to raise money for the 4-H Shooting Sports program without doing the “usual” thing.
“We took a chance on selling a hot meal during the Christmas market (eight years ago) and it has become somewhat of a tradition now,” said Danyelle Yeatman, volunteer with the Webster County 4-H Shooting Sports program.
The money raised from the chili sale goes toward targets, equipment, and range maintenance for the 20-30 students involved in the program.
Danyelle and her husband, Scott Yeatman, will be selling homemade chili at the Eupora Christmas Market this year to raise money for the shooting sports 4-H program.
It is a major undertaking with lots of volunteers meeting at the Stewart Fire Department before the sale to make chili. Baldy Collins and David Morelan also come by and help cook the chili the night before the sale.
They will sell a “meal” for $5 that includes a 16 oz. cup of chili, crackers and a drink. They sell a quart cup of chili only for $9. Yeatman said a lot of people like to bring their own containers and will be priced accordingly. For instance, bring a gallon container for $36. The Chili Sale will be held 10 a.m. until they are sold out on Saturday, Dec. 3 at the Eupora Christmas Market.
