Third Annual Chili Cook Off

Tyler Rotary Club’s 2005 Third Annual Chili Cook-Off was a huge success raising funds for improvements at the St. Louis School, the city’s public school campus for students with learning disabilities, and for the Texas Missions of Mercy, which provides health care to natives in a South American jungle.
