Thanks to all who came to the first "SOUP OFF". We had plenty of soup, dessert, and good fellowship. I am pleased to announce the "winners". Third place went to Bobbi Crimm, second place to Peggy Como, and first place to Ann Cargile. A "BIG" plus to our gathering was the fact we raised $111.70 that will be donated to the Gilbert Fire department. It was decided by those in attendance that we would like to do it again next year. The target date for the 2013 SOUP COOK OFF will be the Saturday before the Super Bowl. After hosting this event I have decided to change the name from "SOUP OFF" to "SOUPER CHEF". Just ask Ann Cargile to show you her plaque from last night and you will know why!
Hope to see you at the next 2013 "SOUPER CHEF" contest,
