HIGHLANDS – Hundreds of enthusiastic local residents gathered last Saturday for the annual Rotary Club Chili Feast.

For the second year in a row, the winner of the new vehicle in the Chili Feast Raffle was a walk-in, buying their $100 ticket at the door. Actually, Frankie Brewer and Gene Lenamond bought five tickets, and one of them turned out to be the lucky one.

The Rotary Club’s 44th Annual Chili Feast was a great success, according to officials with the club. President-elect Sheila McDonald made a report to the club at their luncheon on Tuesday, reporting that the gross receipts for the event are in line with previous years, even though the attendance and ticket sales were down slightly.

The club grossed about $88,000, and netted about $54,000, according to treasurer Tricia Scott. This money will be used throughout the year for local community projects and support for organizations, scholarships, and international aid projects.

McDonald was the chairman of the Chili Feast, which is put on with the help of the scouts, local interact clubs, and wives of the Rotarians.

Top ticket sellers again this year were Betty Brewer, Weston Cotten, Jerry Fallin, and Patricia Scott.

Rick Loggins was the auctioneer for the Live Auction.

As the raffle drawing progressed, anticipation grew as to who would win the new vehicle, the top prize in the raffle. When the last number was drawn, the winner was Baytown resident Frankie Brewer, with Gene Lenamond.

Crosby Kroger closing April 2

The bosses at Kroger decided to close this store on April 2, frequent shoppers have learned that the reason cited for the closure is that the maintenance of the store isn’t cost effective. Employees hope to be picked up by other locations including Baytown, recently the Kroger on Aldine Bender was also closed.

CROSBY – A local mainstay is going away on April 2 and local reaction is that the move isn’t an April fools joke.

The Kroger Store at 105 Kennings Rd. anchors a shopping center central to Crosby. It is open from 6:00 a.m. until midnight.

It was hit hard by flood events. Management has now determined that the amount of money needed to upkeep vital elements like refrigeration make keeping the store open impractical.
