‘Soup Bowl’ event a success

The Board of the House of Compassion and the executive director, Karen Frohwein, wish to thank all the people who showed their support by attending the “Soup Bowl” fundraiser on Sunday and to St. Henry Church for the use of their facilities. We had a great turnout. There were so many compliments on the choice of homemade soups and requests for recipes. Thank you to the volunteers that prepared all the food and served the meal, and of course the cleanup crew. A big thanks go out to the students and faculty at Marshalltown High School for all the beautiful and unique bowls that were made especially for this event. If you didn’t make it this year, we still have a few bowls available for sale at $5 each (contact Karen at 641-752-5999). Again, thank you to everyone for making this a successful event. The proceeds will help many of the less fortunate of our community.
