The 24th annual Roane County Community Chili Supper and Silent Auction sponsored by Senator Ken Yager has been set for November 17, 2017 at Roane State Community College in Harriman. It will be held in the student lounge from 5 to 7 p.m. EST. All proceeds raised will go to the operation of the Roane County Free Medical Clinic. “I am happy to sponsor the annual chili supper and silent auction to benefit a local non-profit,” said Yager. “This year we are pleased to support the Free Medical Clinic of Roane County, located in Harriman. The clinic provides no-charge primary care and wellness services to low-income uninsured residents of the county.” Yager served as Roane County Executive for 24 years (1982-2006). He was elected in 2008 to Senate District 11 which includes Roane, Rhea, Scott, Morgan, Campbell, Fentress and Pickett Counties. Tickets for the event are $5 at the door. Admission for preschool age children is free. Live entertainment will be featured. There will also be a silent auction during the chili supper with proceeds also going to the Free Medical Clinic of Roane County. “As always for this event, the same rules will apply: serve good chili and make no speeches,” says Yager.
