The Variety Soup Supper sponsored by St. John ELCA of Wallis was declared a successful fundraising event.
The members and their pastor, Karen Willhelm, are grateful to the people in this community that supported the event. The crowd of “eaters” was not as large as was hoped but those that came were well pleased with eight or nine different variations they could enjoy.
Along with the wonderful array of soups, stews and chili was a great array of desserts to finish off the meal. Inside the hall was a large assortment of silent auction items to bid on as well as items that went to the winners of the tickets that were drawn. There were also activities for the children to enjoy.
