    Third Anual St. Paul's Chili Cook-off was October 21. Right after Vespers Fr. Ted and the parish blessed the newly installed playground equipment, and also the fire-pit renovated last spring by Gabe Brausch as his Eagle Scout Project. Eight kinds of chili, somores and a bonfire followed. Thanks to everyone whose hard work made these projects happen!
