Bowl held January 26
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, will provide both
comfort and good fellowship with 13 different kinds of
soup and a special sweet table at its seventeenth annual
was held January
26, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the Unrein Room
(the south room) in the Schenk Building at the Ellis
County Fairgrounds. Guests voted for their favorite soup,
and the winning chef will be presented with the
prestigious Golden Ladle Trophy.
Baked potato, fiesta taco, creamy broccoli, white
chili, homemade chili, chicken taco and green chili were
some of the soups vying for the Golden Ladle.
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
Cookbooks of recipes were available for $5.
The Humane Society had a table with pictures of
adoptable pets and information about the shelter.
Membership forms will be available.
Framed pictures from the Picasso Gato project were
on display and for sale. These are true cat artwork.
Nontoxic colors were put on energetic kitten feet, and
modern artwork was created.
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.
