Lions serve soup to community
MILLBROOK — The Millbrook Lions Club annual Soup Sunday allowed participants to get a taste of local restaurants on Sunday, Nov. 13, at the Lyall Federated Church.The Lions Club has hosted the event for more than 10 years. Some restaurants donate the same soup every year, while others try to supply what’s needed. This year, soups were donated from Auriela’s, Babette’s Kitchen, Cafe Les Baux, Charlotte’s, Coaches’, Copperfield’s, Fireside, La Puerta Azul, Marcello’s, Millbrook Cafe, Millbrook Deli, Millbrook Diner, Slammin’ Salmon, Stagecoach Market and Marona’s Market. “Over 90 people attended Soup Sunday,” said Ceil Collopy, member of the Millbrook Lions Club. “Most come in to dine and visit with friends and family, but some choose our takeout option and bring their soup home. Everyone loves the soups, though some have a difficult time choosing from 16 varieties. Many like to sample a few soups before making a decision. Everyone can have seconds, so that makes the decision a little easier.”All profits made during Soup Sunday are used for the Millbrook Lions’ upcoming events. The John P. Manzi Seniors’ Holiday Dinner will be held on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Union Vale firehouse on Route 22. The event is for local seniors, providing them with dinner and gifts, prizes and entertainment. All remaining profits raised at Soup Sunday will go to the Millbrook Lions Scholarship Fund; a scholarship goes to one Millbrook High School senior every year.
