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.
