WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Warm up from the winter chill Saturday, Jan. 18, at the annual Friends of the Garnett Library chili supper, set for 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 112 Aid Ave., in downtown West Plains.
The fund-raising event is being held prior to the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzlies’ annual homecoming basketball game against Region 16 arch rival Three Rivers College of Poplar Bluff in the Joe Paul Evans Arena at the West Plains Civic Center, according to organizers.
For $7.50 per person and $3 for children age six and under, area residents can stop by and have a hot bowl of hearty chili with all of the fixings, as well as dessert and something to drink, before attending the game, organizers said. Complimentary game tickets also will be given to those attending who do not already have passes to the game, they added.
Tickets for the chili supper may be purchased in advance from the Missouri State University-West Plains development office, 905 W. Main St.; the Garnett Library, 304 W. Trish Knight St.; or at the door. Proceeds will go toward the purchase of books and other items for the Garnett Library, organizers said.
