17th Annual Chili Fest - The Hottest Ever!
Welcome to the Henniker Rotary Club "Fire on the Mountain" Chili Fest, an annual
celebration of all things spicy. Join us on August 18th, 2019 for
a family-friendly afternoon at beautiful Pats Peak Ski Area in Henniker,
NH filled with food, beverage, entertainment and activities for the kids.
Fiery Foods Fuel Philanthropy
In the 16 years the Henniker Rotary has hosted Chili Fest, you have helped
us raise and distribute over $200,000 to local, regional and international
service and humanitarian causes. These include: scholarships to local high
school students going on the college or trade schools, supporting local
food pantries, libraries, fire safety projects, school organizations like
DECA and Butler and Amey Brook Park beautification activities, installing
new benches in Henniker's Community Park to celebrate the 250th celebration
and supporting local non-profits, Senior Centers and cultural events.
As part of Rotary's worldwide mission, we have spearheaded efforts to bring
Pure Water to Nicaragua and Honduras and worked alongside the Rotary
International Foundation to eradicate Polio worldwide as well as helped
fund disaster relief projects around the country.
We invite your continued support.
