1) Democrats do not live on chili alone. We need salad. And cornbread. And something good to wash it down.
2) If you bring chili, your $8 entry fee is waived. If you bring cornbread and/or salad and/or beverage, you pay only $5 to get in.
3) If you simply wish to enjoy a good meal and the fellowship of good Democrats, bring $8/person. You will taste test and vote for winners.
4) Special prizes will be awarded for First, Second, and Third place in the Chili Cookoff Competition. There are many varieties of chili: Cincinnati, vegetarian, white, etc. Pick your favorite recipe, make it, and bring it!
–> Please call Dem HQ (692-6424) (M-F 11am – 2 pm or leave a message) and tell us what you plan to bring so we don’t end up with pounds of cornbread and gallons of ice tea. Leftover chili??? Unlikely!

Governor Terry Sanford requested that Dr. Stone go out into the state and select sites for several community colleges. Sandhill Community College, between Southern Pines and Pinehurst, was chartered in 1963 and Dr. Stone was appointed its first president where he served for 25 years, with a campus building bearing his name. For his many contributions to the State of North Carolina, he was awarded the highest and most prestigious honor available to North Carolina citizens – The Order of the Long Leaf Pine. Dr. Stone is a life-long Democrat and a long-time member of the local Democratic party.
