Mike Bollinger fills a bowl with chili during the Sikeston Rotary Club's annual chili day on Wednesday while some of the approximately 1,800 people who attended the lunch and dinner go through the line. Proceeds from the annual event benefit local and Rotary charities. This year's chili day also included the opportunity for each person who bought a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a $750 cruise voucher provided by United Travel Associates. The voucher was won by Jim Gooch.
