The Roxbury Congregational Church will host a chili cook-off dinner March 8 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The event at the 24 Church St. church will feature more than 10 types of chili, including vegetarian, to be sampled and voted on by attendees.

After voting, diners can eat chili made by cooks in the community; macaroni and cheese will be available for children, and dessert will be served.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under, with proceeds to benefit the church's mission trip to South Dakota July 5-12 with Simple Smiles.
