Thanks to All for a Successful Soup and Games Night

Many thanks from the Board of the Nolumbeka Project to everyone who helped make the March 2nd Free Soup and Games Night benefit a success.

We extend our sincere gratitude to Jim Zaccara and staff of Hope & Olive restaurant for opening their doors to this fundraising opportunity and for helping us in many other ways.

We especially thank the businesses which contributed delicious soups and breads to us: Bread Euphoria, Clay Oven, Diemand Farms, Franklin County Technical School, Frosted, Green Fields Market, Magpie, Mesa Verde, Peoples Pint, Rendezvous, and the Wagon Wheel. We had a wonderful array of desserts thanks, in part, to donations from Apex Orchards, Megahn Carr, Hazel Dawkins, Shirl Majewski, and Elyssa Serrilli. 

Among our most popular raffle items were gift certificates from Foster’s Super Market, Big Y, an arrowhead made by Neill Bovaird of Wolf Tree programs, beads made by Mary Wheelan, and a half hour massage with hot stones from Rachel E. Arnold, LMT. 

We are so grateful to the volunteers who helped throughout the evening: Dan Dickinson and his friend Amy, Ericalyn Farnham, Theresa Scheutze, Kelsey Shafer, Lance Smith, Dianne Supler, and Michael Van Camp. And a big thanks to WRSI and Monte for the helping to spread the word.
