With Thursday marking the 39th annual Sertoma Chili Day, those who work the event seemed to have gotten the process down to a science.
“It’s pretty much a well-oiled machine at this point,” Sertoma Club member Brian Schlosser said. “Everyone knows what to do and how to do it.”
Schlosser noted that some club members have been working the event for more than 25 years.
“These members enjoy what they do or else they wouldn’t have stayed around as long as they have,” he said.
By 1 p.m., about 200 people who had purchased tickets prior to the event had already stopped in. Beyond that, there were 50 deliveries made and 240 more people had gotten their chili from the drive through.
In all, Schlosser said they expected between 1,100 and 1,200 people to have arrived by the end of the day.
