Hartland celebrated winter despite the lack of snow on Saturday with its annual Winterfest Chili Cook Off. The Hartland Recreation Department sponsored the cook off and a snow sculpture competition, where photos of sculptures created when we had snow we submitted online, printed out and voted on. In addition, there was a silent auction to benefit the 8th Grade Graduation Trip and the Hartland Cooperative Nursery School.
The Chili winners first place Jenn and George Burne for their Rte 12 Chili, second place Julie Abernathy’s Maple Chili, and third place Dam Good Chili made by Tanner Potter last year’s first place winner. The first place prize for the snow sculptures went to Cal and Silvia Hale for the dog with dog creation.
