Each year our church has its annual Chili Supper and Hayride! It is a wonderful time of fellowship with friends, good food and fun! First we sign up to bring either homemade chili/soup/chowder, dessert, or the fixins'. Many enter the contests for Best Chili, Best Soup, and Best Homemade Dessert. Ballots are passed out and the taste testing begins. Once our bellies are full and prizes are awarded, we bundle up and head for the cotton trailer that is filled with hay. We pack it full, which is great for warm snuggles with the kids. We enjoy the beautiful, night sky, sing songs and tell jokes, enjoying our time together. This annual tradition is also home of another West fall tradition. Since our very first attendance, we dress for the occasion, wearing our white shirts and overalls. Over the years we have invested in many a pair of overalls!
