Successful Sale

             What a great feeling—every container of soup was sold last Sunday!!!  Many, many “thanks” to all the special volunteers who helped prepare the soup—Dee Dixon, Marge Hill, Veronica & Gary Heaney Barb Miller, and Laurie Larson.  

Proceeds from the sale have gone into the “Kitchen Fund” for future use. Hopefully, we can hold another event this year and have another success!
