Welcome to Altamont, Illinois! We are your typical small Midwestern town. You can find us half-way between St. Louis and Terre Haute, just off Interstate 70. Hope this site will encourage you to stop and visit if you've never been here, and if you have, I hope I renew some good memories!
Better late than never! I meant to post this earlier this week, but life stuff got in the way, like normal. Anyway, after a wet start to the morning, the day ended up cloudy and cool- just perfect for chili. It seemed to me that there was a good crowd. It's nice to see that the Garden Club gets support from the community.
The winners of the cook-off was Larry Quandt (People's choice) and Kieffer Milam (Judges' choice.)
Plus, there was a bake sale, sandwiches and chips, a silent auction, mums and pumpkins, music, a vendor area and a kids corner.
Good times were had by all! (and it's for a good cause!)
