The Wapakoneta Sertoma Club held its 41st annual Chili Day on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

The $8 meal included a hot dog, a drink, dessert and of course, chili. At around 5:30 p.m., chairman Jon Derryberry said the club was happy with the turnout and estimated about 400 people had dined in and about 500 people had gotten their food via drive up service. Preparation for the day occurred the night before.

The club made 120 gallons of chili for the fundraiser this year. Derryberry said the busiest times occur from 11:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. and from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
