Be warm and cozy on a winter day at the Soup Lunch from 11:30-1 on Wednesday, February 13
(snow date Feb. 15*).  Your fellow members from the Ways and Means Committee are putting on
a winter fundraiser that will include a delicious lunch and a bake sale. Tickets are on sale now; if
enough tickets have not been sold by January 31, the Board will decide on February 1 if the
fundraiser will still be held. Those making soup or bake sale items may want to wait to purchase
Lunch will include soup, ½ sandwich, crackers, dessert, and tea, coffee. Tickets cost $6 each and
there is no ticket limit since this a fundraiser. Please have the exact change or write a check since
the desk is limited in making change. You can also shop at the bake sale for an extra treat to take
home and participate in a 50/50 raffle if you wish. You may bring non-members to enjoy the event
and maybe they will want to become members.
A sign-up sheet is at the desk to volunteer to make soup (bring already heated in crockpot),
baked goods, and/or work a shift. Please sign up to help! If you can't bring food or help work,
monetary donations of any amount are gladly accepted.
*Weather Procedure: if schools close on February 13 for snow/ice reasons, the event will be held
February 15 but IF the schools close only because of cold temperature/wind chill and snow/ice is
not the primary issue, then the lunch will still be held on February 13. Please leave both dates
open and be prepared with your donations for either day.
