Fallbrook Newcomers hosts annual chili cook off with North County Firefighters as guest judges

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Newcomers, a community organization dedicated to welcoming and fostering friendship among Fallbrook residents, recently held its annual fall chili cook off and dinner party hosted by Newcomers Events Director Candice Kelly. The popular Newcomers themed dinner parties are a great way to make new friends while enjoying a delicious meal in a relaxing environment.

The annual fall party took place Saturday, Oct. 7, at the home of Sandy and Wade Mayo and included a Chili Cook Off as well as a Pumpkin Decorating Contest. The Chili Cook Off was a success with delicious chili entries prepared by several Newcomers who showed off their culinary skills. And special thanks to the North County Firefighters for attending the Chili Cook Off to provide their gastronomic expertise as judges for the contest.

"What a fantastic party," Newcomer Mindy C. said. "The annual Newcomers fall event was one for the memory book. A lovely fall setting at the beautiful home of Sandy and Wade Mayo began with a photo op with the cute scarecrow (wish I could remember her name...) A chili cook off and pumpkin decorating contest judged by our North County Firefighters."

The club's social meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at Christ the King Church at 10 a.m. The upcoming Nov. 9 meeting will feature Kris Jorgensen, branch manager for the Fallbrook Library for the past six years. Jorgensen will discuss what is currently happening at our beautiful Fallbrook Library, including its many current and upcoming activities, its resources and how you can be involved.
