Scholarships, stained glass, and singing carnivorous plants were part of September’s Salida Soup (how’s THAT for alliteration?!).
Bones Davis presented on behalf of his non-profit organization Articipate, with past and present students lauding the program as an asset to the community. Licia Iverson spoke to the crowd of 100+ about the United Methodist Church’s one hundred year old stained glass windows and the proposed cost of maintenance, cleaning, and repair. But it was Devon Kaspar and Andre Wilkins, and the cast of the upcoming fall SHS production of Little Shop Of Horrors, that stole the show. Their rendition of “Skid Row”, the opening number of LSOH, was strong and exciting. The diners thought so as well, voting a veritable landslide of support for the Kaspar & Wilkins effort.
October will see the 3rd annual Spooky Soup - diners are encouraged to come in costume, and to bring a scary, weird, or spooky potluck item. Salida Soup 41 is Thursday, October 18.
