Ugly sweaters, soup cook-off set this week

Albion Chamber of Commerce continues its special Christmas season events this week on Thursday, Dec. 14, and Saturday, Dec. 16.
The chamber-sponsored radio drawings continue Thursday night. There was no winner last week, so this week’s prize is $300 in Chamber Bucks. The drawing from business receipts during the week will be held at 6 p.m. in the downtown mini-park. The winner will be announced on US92 radio, and must be present in a participating business to win the prize.
The Community Ugly Sweater Contest will be Friday, Dec. 15. Business groups or individuals can send their pictures to Albion Thriftyway at that day, or bring in a photo to the store.
A Soup Cook-off will be held Saturday, Dec. 16, at the Albion KC Hall, registration at 5:30 p.m. Doors open to the public at 6 p.m. for tasting and judging. Bring a crock pot of soup for the contest. There is a nominal cover charge, with a soup meal included. Proceeds go to the Christmas lighting project.
