Soup ‘r’ Chili Luncheon

Launches Weekend Fete

For the 25th year, Cooperstown’s Dick Sliter pours broccoli and cheddar chowder at the Soup ‘r’ Chili celebration underway until 2 at Cooperstown Baptist Church, Elm Street. Sliter, a local businessman who has also acted as interim pastor for the local Baptists, first began ladeling at the event in 1993. The chowder, he said, contains 8 pounds of broccoli and 8 pounds of potatoes. The luncheon is the traditional start of the Cooperstown Winter Carnival, which has events planned throughout the weekend.  Soup ‘r’ Chili will also be served 11 a.m-2 p.m. Saturday at the Baptist Church.  (Jim Kevlin/
