The Jenkintown Rec Board is a volunteer group, funded by the Borough, that organizes community events for Jenkintown residents. Rec Board events in the past have included the Holiday Tree Lighting, Camden Rivershark bus trips, the Not-So-Spooky Haunted Halloween, Poetry on the Square and many others. Rec Board events are a great way to get to know your neighbors and to reconnect with old friends.
The Rec Board could use your help. If you’re interested in joining the fun, contact Ed Foley at 215-260-5701 to find out how you can contribute as either a fulltime member of the Rec Board, or as a helper at one of our events.

Saturday, October 20, 2-5 p.m.- Chili Cook-Off and Pie-Eating Contest
Bust out your classic chili recipe for Jenkintown's 4th Annual Chili Cook-Off and Pie-Eating Contest. This event is one for the whole family, a crisp fall day of hearty chili and gross overeating. The Chili Cook-Off will result in two lucky borough chili chefs being crowned the Jenkintown Chili King and/or Queen — with a $250 cash prize for the Popular Vote winner – and the Pie-Eating contest will prove once and for all who can eat an entire cherry pie the fastest without using their hands. Two age divisions for the pie-eating: under 18, and ages 18 and up.
All signups are first-come, first-served. Online registration, including contest rules, are here. Entry fee: FREE for chili cooks, and $5 for pie eaters (refunded if you show up). Interested in just tasting? A $5 fee will get you a wristband entitling to you taste as much chili as you need to in order to make an informed voting decision.
Entrants will be limited to 20 in the pie eating contest, and 25 chili cooks.. Online registration, including contest rules, are here. Cookoff entry fee: FREE!
