Soup R’ Chili Served ’til 2 As Festive Weekend Starts

2019 COOPERSTOWN WINTER CARNIVAL

Soup R’ Chili Served ’til 2

As Festive Weekend Starts

As it has for more than a quarter-century, the Cooperstown Winter Carnival begins when Dick Sliter declares, “Soup’s on!”  The carnival’s traditional first event, the Soup R’ Chili luncheon at the First Baptist Church, 21 Elm St., is underway until 2 p.m.  (and again 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday).  Sliter, a retired pastor who came out of retirement in the past year to fill in at the Columbus Community Church, west of  West Edmeston, has been head cook at this event for 26 years now.  Inset is Dick’s wife Gail, who has a lot of heart, including heart-shaped cookies, also available.
