It's that time of year for our Annual Soup Luncheon to raise funds for a local charity. The charity selected this year is Paxton's Blessing Box

Here's how it works:

Members sign up to bring Chili, Soup, Dessert or a Bread item

Members bring cash to the meeting and use $1 bills to vote for their favorite soup, chili or dessert. Change will be available.

The money received from the votes, along with the meal money we save from not eating at RHCC, will be donated to Paxton's Blessing Box to provide food for the needy.

Categories for entering this year: the top winners will receive a prize.

  1. Anything Goes Soup
  2. Chili
  3. Dessert

We had a great sign up so far, but still need a commitment TODAY for: 

3 members to bring a crockpot of Soup OR Chili 

2 members to bring a dessert

3 members to bring bread, rolls or crackers

Sign up at TODAY's meeting if you can bring one of the needed items. Be sure to bring a serving utensil for your food item.

Get your order in today if you would like to purchase a WW Rotary polo shirt.
