This year the Friends of the Rowley Library will host Rowley's 12th "Some Like it Hot!" Chili Cookoff on September 26, 2015 - on the Town Common, 2:00 p.m. until dusk! After the winter we've just had, we all just want to be outside with friends and family, enjoying great chili under the tent and, of course, rockin' live music and a libation from Ipswich Ale's Vintage Tapmobile. Mark your calendars (rain date September 27th). If you're interested in cooking for volunteering on the Cookoff Crew, please drop us a line to
