The Mothers Club of Boy Scout Troop 161 will serve chili and vegetable soup Saturday.

The annual dinner will be 4 to 7 p.m. at East Alton Community of Christ, 16999 E. 23rd St, at the corner of 23rd Street and R.D. Mize Road in Independence.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children 5 to 10, or $15 for a family of four. The meal includes condiments, dessert and a drink. For the first time this year, the $5 ticket can be used for a quart of chili to go, just in time for Super Bowl Sunday.

A silent auction will feature several nice items.

The proceeds from the dinner go to help fund projects for the Scouts in the troop, which is sponsored by the East Alton church.
