Partying indoors for a good cause.

Threatening skies forced First Baptist Church to move their chili cook-off and block party into the Fellowship Hall Saturday night.  It didn't prevent atendees from enjoying the different types of chili made and music from the Skylarks.  Donations collected will be split between the 2018 Uganda Mission team and current missionary living in Uganda Sheila "Buffy" Buff.
