While it might be a little grey and dreary outside, there's is a lot happening in town today that is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Right now the 2nd Annual Schroon Lake Chili Cook Off is getting underway at the Fish and Game Club.
A record 15 chilis will be featured, from home cooks, area restaurants and four local Fire rescue and EMT Squads. The event runs from 11:30am until 2 pm. There's an open bar, 50-50 raffle as well as chair massages from Bella Donna from Schroon Lake's Massage and Wellness Center, in exchange for a donation to the Schroon Lake EMS squad.
