NASHVILLE, TN (WLAF) – State Senator Ken Yager (R-Kingston) today released a statement providing an update on this year’s chili supper:

“I regret to announce that our annual chili supper and silent auction will not be held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Yager. “For 27 years I have hosted this community event, but now we must prioritize public health.  I deeply appreciate the huge effort from the many volunteers and the generosity of silent auction donors. Together we put on a quality, family event and raised needed funds for local nonprofits.  Many thanks to the public from throughout the district who have consistently supported the event.” (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/13/2020-NOON)
