The event was started last year as a way for firefighters and Dickenson Hall to participate with one another. For the event’s inaugural year, 50 members showed up, but this year the event almost doubled with 92 senior citizens in attendance. “This is [a special event] to us because we all appreciate what our local firefighters do for us every day, not just today,” said Jill Becker, the manager at Dickinson Hall. “[The firefighters] are our everyday heroes. Events planned with the fire and police departments are so important to our members who have great pride in our Lake Forest and Lake Bluff communities. They enjoy learning more about local services and the opportunity of getting to know the individuals who work diligently for our safety.” Members of Dickinson Hall lined up to grab a bowl of chili, made by the firefighters, and thank the firefighters for their service to the community. After grabbing a bowl of chili, residents were entertained with live music by The Swingin’ Sonatas, made up of a group of students from Lake Forest High School. As residents indulged in some hot chili and conversation, firefighters walked around to meet residents Members of The Swingin’ Sonatas, Johnny Kilmer (left) and Charlotte Moore, play music during Dickinson Hall’s annual Firefighters Chili Lunch on Friday, Jan. 19.

Becker said the event is also a nice opportunity to warm up inside with some friends during the winter. “The purpose of the event is to just to have fun, socialize and warm up with good food on a winter’s day. January can be bleak with poor weather conditions and post-Holiday blues, so we thought this was a perfect way to liven up the month,” she said. For the firefighters, the event was about getting to know residents and enjoying some time out in the community. “We (the firefighters) love any time we can get out and interact with the public,” said Fire Chief Pete Siebert. “A lot of times, with the seniors, we see a lot of these people in emergency situations, to be able to meet them when it is not an emergency setting is nice.” “A gift for this planet.” —Georgian veteran journalist Helena Apkhadze MAR 21-25 Rosemont Rosemont Theatre Art That Connects Heaven and Earth “ I have reviewed about 4,000 shows since 1942.
