Nex-Tech Wireless Wins
Golden Ladel Award

Golden Ladel Award Winners, Nex-Tech Wireless

     One of the best comfort foods in the middle of winter is a bowl of steaming soup. During SoupíR Bowl XV, the Humane Society of the High Plains, provided both comfort and good fellowship with 13 different kinds of soup and a special sweet table at its seventeenth annual SoupíR Bowl.
     SoupíR Bowl was held January 26, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the Unrein Room in the Schenk Building at the Ellis County Fairgrounds. Guests voted for their favorite soup, and the winning chefs at  Nex-Tech Wireless were presented with the prestigious Golden Ladle Trophy for their Creamy Broccoli Soup.
     Beside door prizes, names also were drawn for two exquisite quilts made by Tobi Neuberger and Sherry Leiker. Michael Jilg has donated one of his unique lithographs. The raffle also included five gift certificates from The Rose Garden and steins or mugs from Western Beverage.
     Odus Trober was the Emcee and sound engineer.
       The Humane Society of the High Plains housed over 1,200 animals in 2013 from Hays, Ellis County, Northwest Kansas and Central Kansas. An astounding 90 per cent found forever homes or were sent to rescue groups. The HSHP ultimately accepts all animals, but sometimes asks owners to wait to surrender their animals when space opens up. The funds raised by the SoupíR Bowl will be used to help animals with special needs and to spay and neuter pets to make them more adoptable.
