d Good News
A large crowd complete with media
representatives were on hand at noon
on Valentine's Day for the grand opening and celebration of Stone Soup, the
cupboard for the AIDS Foundation's
food program. Officials Eleanor Tinsley
and George Greanias made short statements before the open house tour began.
A buffet was provided from area businesses.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was
short but the meaning was deep. The
invitations read, "Come join us in the
ribbon cutting and celebrate what donations and love have built, a wonderful
Stone Soup for all to share."
The best part of the tour was to see
people leave the pantry with sacks full
of groceries. You can help. Fresh produce is one of the hardest things to get.
Maybe you might think of picking up
extra bags of oranges or apples on your
next shopping trip, just for Stone Soup.
