10th Annual Chili Cook-Off & Emergency Preparedness Fair
  
Benton County Sheriff's Office, along with local community organizations, compete for the honor of "Benton's Best Rootin' Tootin' Shoot'em Up Chili!" 

The BCSO Chili Cook-Off raises money for local charities and is fun for the whole family. Activities include live music, raffle prizes, the REACH Air-Medical Services helicopter (when it's not in service), demonstrations by public safety professionals, activities for the kids, and...of course...chili tasting!

Benton County Advisory Committees
  
Interested in Serving?
Participation on county boards and commissions involves citizens directly in local government in an impactful way and provides the Board of Commissioners with timely input on important issues. Members of Benton County's various advisory boards and committees are unpaid volunteers who devote numerous hours of their time to these community activities. Members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners to fill vacancies, which have set terms.

Click here for more information about Benton County advisory committees, or join us for our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and recruitment event on Thursday, September 21, in Guerber Hall.  Contact the Board of Commissioners office for information.

Boer goats commonly have white bodies, distinctive brown heads and long pendulous ears. The Boer goat was developed in South Africa in the early 1900s for meat production. Their name is derived from the Afrikaans (Dutch) word "boer," meaning farmer. They are noted for being docile, fast-growing and having high fertility rates. Come check them out!
