Rotary in the Morning

The Belvidere Noon Club is happy to present "Rotary in the Morning"
Starting January 25th we will add morning meetings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at the Steamplant Family Restaurant - Belvidere from 8-9 am.

We are hoping to engage members that may not be able to make our regular noon meetings.  We are testing this and it will be an evolving meeting.  This will be a part of the noon club and not a separate club. Guests and members are welcome at either of the club's meetings. 

Dates: January 25th, February 8, February 22.

2023 Annual Chamber Chili Cookoff

Each competitor should bring their best chili to be sampled by all and judged by a few. 

Did you grow some mean ghost peppers this summer?  Toss them in!  Maybe you have the most incredible vegan chili around?  Wonderful, let's try it!  Do you make an incredible brisket and that is your secret ingredient?  We can't wait to taste it!  Serving it Cincinnati style?  Great!  I love spaghetti!


We will be utilizing the main floor of the Community Building Complex.  As you complete the registration, you will select your booth.  One 10x10 booth is $100, if you would like a larger space, you may register for multiple booths. 
  • If you are considering serving alcohol in your booth, contact the Chamber for compliance rules and regulations! Booths not in compliance will be shut down!  
  • You can decorate your area from 1:00pm-5:00pm on the day of the event.
  • Bring your chili pre-heated! 
  • Bring a 50’ extension cord for your crock pot. It may be needed to reach the main power bank. You are responsible for any additional cords needed.
  • Do Not use Duct or Packaging Tape on walls or floors! (Use Blue or General Purpose Masking tape only.)
  • We will provide sampling bowls, spoons, paper towels, a table, and a chair. You are responsible for ladles and condiments for your chili.
  • Take leftover chili with you. Do Not place in Trash Receptacles or Kitchen sinks!
  • Participants serving alcohol without proper compliance will be immediately shut down! We must adhere to the Illinois Liquor Laws for everyone’s protection.
  • The event starts at 5:00pm (Judging will begin promptly and will need to be complete by 6:30)
The winner will be congratulated on Social Media.

Call the Chamber 815-544-4357 with any additional questions.
