A big bowl of chili can really warm a body and hit the spot on a cold winter’s evening, and Mexia area residents will have the opportunity to enjoy the traditional Texas dish the night of Mexia’s Christmas parade on Thursday, Dec. 1.
A chili dinner with all the trimmings, like crackers, onions and grated cheese, plus a soft drink and dessert, will be served at Rotary Hall, 315 E. Commerce Street, 5-8 p.m., which is before, during and after the 6 p.m. Christmas parade.
“We invite everybody in Mexia to come out to the Rotary Hall and have some delicious chili,” said Rotary President Larry Reynolds. “The chili is being prepared by Joe Friday’s Diner, and the desserts are mostly homemade, as they are being provided by Rotarians.”
Tickets are $7 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under. Tickets may be purchased from any Mexia Rotarian or at the door.
