CHASE — Deer rifle season not only is a time for hunting enthusiasts to get their trophy buck, or for people to put extra food on the table, it also is a time for community traditions of hosting hunter suppers.

The community of Chase turned out for a hunter chili and soup supper Sunday evening hosted by Chase Fellowship Church at the Chase Township Hall to help raise money for an addition to the church.

Pastor Connie Shoemaker said although she would have liked an even bigger turnout, they did pretty well.

With a growing attendance through the years, and growing families, the addition would be for a Sunday school room.

"We have been in this church for six years now, and we are already running out of room. That is so cool," she said.

The piping hot food was a good choice for the cold, brisk weather, with several styles of chili and soups and fixings, corn breads and desserts, all you can eat.

The church welcomes donations toward this project, which can be mailed to 501 Center Street, Chase, MI 49623.
