Community Bible Study is hosting a soup-making event on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. The bagged, dry-soup mix will be packaged and then given to local food shelves in McLeod County and surrounding counties. Volunteers from the community are welcome to join the effort to put together 1,000 bags, and then to join in a meal at noon (sampling our product) that day. From soup-making to soup-eating, this is a free event. For more information, contact the Rev. James Gomez at 864-6157.
