MEDINA – The Medina Rotary Club had a craft fair and served up chili on Saturday in a benefit for Rotary’s youth programs in Medina.

The event was held at the United Methodist Church in the former Apple Grove Inn at 11004 West Center St.

Bill Bixler and Julianna Duda serve up three varieties of chili (white chicken, sweet, and spicy beer chili). Proceeds of the chili sale benefit the Rotary Club of Medina’s youth programs including scholarships to Medina High School and the foreign exchange student program. Duda said Rotary believes strongly in these programs due to “kids being our future.” The Bread Basket in Medina donated all the bread to go with the chili.

Pumpkins and frog were created by Bubba’s Chainsaw Carvings in Lyndonville.
