Over 120 people came for homemade soups, fresh breads and an array of desserts at the annual Food Pantry Harvest Bowl. This year there were 12 different soups from old favorite Lupe Rubio’s Five Star Chili to Catherine Fleming’s new Green Chili Corn Chowder, along with other annual favorites to choose from. The Border Blues played to the packed house while folks dined, bought raffle tickets, shopped for pottery and bid on fine art. There was even a little dancing going on among the always enthusiastic Food Pantry volunteers and board members.
The grand winner of the raffle was soup-maker and volunteer Roseland Klein, who won the $100 gift certificate from Porters/Thriftway. Perry Cozzen won a $25.00 certificate from Stone Village Market, Diane Trevino won a $25.00 certificate from Fort Davis Outfitters. Lynda George won a thanksgiving pie of her choice donated by Susan Penney. Everyone there was a winner with the best all-you-can-eat soup supper ever!
