Chili Supper Cook Off Concert 2014

With the smell of homemade chili in the air it was hard to resist coming to the first annual Chili Supper Cook Off Concert. This year was different compared to the past because this year we added a twist to just eating chili and having a great musical act to watch, this year we asked organizations of the school to compete in the first annual Chili  Supper Cook Off Concert. This years contestants were the Northeast Cougaretts, the Northeast Cheer Squad, and the Drama Department. The rules were the organizations had to make their own chili and people would come around and taste each chili and donate as much as they wanted to the chili they liked and who ever had the most donations at the end of the night would be crowned the first annual Chili Cook Off winners! Also the donations that each organization got they got to keep, as a fundraiser for each group. But a little friendly competition doesn’t come without a show! The night started off with the high school choir singing

Grandma’s Feather Bed, followed with a mix of the junior high girl choir and the high school girls singing Man I Feel Like A Women, then the high school choir finished with I’ll Stand By You. Next to follow with the awesome entertainment was the junior high choir with Mama Don’t Allow, then the 7-12 Grade choir boys singing Honkey-Tonk Ba-Donkey-Donk, and ending with a tribute to Johnny Cash with I Walk The Line; A Tribute to Johnny Cash. Next in line was the strumming good tunes of the Music Appreciation Guitar ensamble, with soloist Darcey Simonson singing God Gave Me You, and another solo by Jessie Mutum with Wake Me Up. You know the Music Appriciation class was hard to follow up, but I think that the Music Technology kids did a pretty good job with their musical ensemble of That’s My Kind of Night. And lastly but certainly not least was the Northeast Band with Rhinestone Cowboy, Old Santa Fe, and a Taylor Swift Medley to end the night. The Music Department wants to personally thank everyone that came and supported the Chili Supper Cook Off Concert, and we also want to thank all the organizations for competing in the Chili Cook Off! Lastly all the organizations that participated want to thank all that donated to them, we are so thankful and the money we raised will go to good use! And by the way the Chili Cook Off winners were the Northeast Pom Squad with $81 and Northeast Cheer Squad with $77, and last but not least the Northeast Drama Department with $30.Thank You and see you at our next Spring Concert on April 7th, and our Spring Recital on April 9th!
