IRON RIVER—Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, is going to be a “Souper Day” at First Presbyterian Church here.
The service starts at 10:30 a.m., which is also Communion and Family Day.
A collection for the “Souper Bowl” will be taken at the end of the service and given to the St. Vincent pantry.
“If you want to help the pantry out with additional soups, bring canned or dry packet soups before Super Bowl Sunday, and we will deliver them with the money collected to help the hungry in our area,” said Marilyn Budzak.
The soup and bread lunch starts at 11:45 a.m. in Fellowship Hall.
Tickets are $7 for adults and take-outs, $3.50 for children under 12.
“We have had as many as 12 to 16 different soups in the past,” said Budzak. “Come and see how many we will have to offer you this year.”
One of the favorites, said Budzak, is Joyce Stapleton’s chicken dumpling. Homemade breads, bars, coffee, tea and lemonade will make for a hearty winter meal.
“White Water’s concert usually begins about 1 p.m. Bette and Dean Premo have been helping the church for many years, raising money for the heating bills.”
This year, said Budzak, the money will go for lighting projects in the pastor and secretary’s offices.
“We all appreciate their talent and sharing it with us,” she said.
“We extend an invitation to all to come and take part in our ‘Souper Bowl.’ Come to church, give to the special collection, stay for soup and bread lunch, and enjoy the White Water concert with family and friends. A great way to spend a winter’s Sunday in the U.P.”
