Warm up from the winter chill Saturday, Feb. 18, at the annual Friends of the Garnett Library chili supper.
The event is set for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Magnolia Room at the West Plains Civic Center, 110 St. Louis St.
The fund-raising event, sponsored by Wendy’s restaurant in West Plains, is being held prior to Missouri State University-West Plains’ annual homecoming basketball game. The Grizzlies will face Region 16 rival Mineral Area College in Joe Paul Evans Arena at the West Plains Civic Center.
For $7.50 per person and $5 for students ages five and above, area residents can stop by and have a hot bowl of hearty chili with all of the fixings prior to the game, organizers said. The price includes a drink and dessert, they added.
Complimentary game tickets also will be given to those attending the chili supper who do not already have passes to the game, organizers said.
