United Way’s Stone Soup Too Luncheon a Success

I extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who lent their support to the United Way’s  Annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon graciously hosted by Holy Trinity Parish in Fulton.

From the large amount of people who attended, to the many businesses and organizations that helped make the event possible, our Stone Soup Too Luncheon was a perfect example of the United Way’s mantra, ‘It’s Our Community…and It’s Personal’ as the community came together to show their support for the United Way and help our area food pantries.

Special thanks to Mimi’s Drive-In, Blue Moon Grill, Tavern on the Lock, and The Foursome Diner for providing our soups; Dunkin’ Donuts for the ‘Boxes of Joe’; C’s Farms & Davis Bros. for our salad fixings; Red Baron who provided the rolls; Kathy’s Cakes, Joe’s Corner Market, Price Chopper, and Springside at Seneca Hill for donating our desserts; Hudson Dairy for providing bottled water; Walmart Supercenter in Granby, Fulton YMCA, the City of Fulton, and Struppler’s Shurfine Market for contributing to our food drive; Blue Moon Grill, Unique Hair Shoppe, Cayuga CC Fulton Campus, Barnes & Noble, and B & T Sports for the door prizes; and the Sugar & Scanlon Funeral Home of Oswego and Sugar Funeral Home in Fulton for sponsoring rides and lunch for residents of Fulton Mill Apartments.

Our Stone Soup Luncheon would not have been possible if not for the efforts of our committee members: Catherine Trowbridge, City of Fulton; Helen Hoefer and George Timmins of Catholic Charities of Oswego County; Steve Chirello, Chirello Advertising; Karen Hubel, Blue Moon Grill; Lori Lyons and Michele Sherman of the Walmart Supercenter in Granby; Jo-Lynn Phillips and Stephanie Budd of OCO; Sue Witmer of Cayuga Community College Fulton Campus; Jan Rebeor, and our many community volunteers including; Judy and Bud Young, members of Phi Theta Kappa at Cayuga Community College Fulton Campus, Lori Lyons, Linda Marlowe, Shelayna Snow and Jaime Prusinowski, employees of the Walmart Super Center in Granby, Pam Peeling Catholic Charities, Jay Foster Fulton City Councilor, Tony Rebeor.

Thanks to the support we received from community members who attended, the generous donations of $500 from the Fulton Lions Club and $100 from the Fulton Sunrise Rotary, our Annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon raised $1,125 for food pantries in Oswego County.

Thank you for your support!
