18th Annual Henniker New Hampshire Chili Fest
The Henniker New Hampshire Rotary Club is saddened to announce that the 2020 Chili Festival
has become a victim of the Covid 19 Virus and has been cancelled. Furthermore, it has been decided
to cancel all future Chili Festivals.
It has been a great run and we appreciate and thank the many volunteers, sponsors, suppliers and attendees
over the years, without you we could not have done it.
In the 18 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.
