I extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who lent their support to the United Way’s Fourth 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 ‘Live United’ concept 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 Dinner 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; Struppler’s Shurfine Market for contributing to our food drive and OCO, B & T Sports, Unique Hair Shoppe, Walmart, Blue Moon Grill and the Cayuga Community College Bookstore for the door prizes.
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 of Catholic Charities of Oswego County; Steve Chirello, Chirello Advertising; Karen Hubel, Blue Moon Grill; George Timmins, of Catholic Charities of Oswego County; Lori Lyon of the Walmart Super Center in Granby; Gina Camardello of Key Bank Fulton; Jo-Lynn Phillips and Stephanie Langdon of OCO; Sue Witmer of Cayuga Community College Fulton; Michele Sherman, of the Walmart Super Center in Granby; Jan Rebeor of Fulton Community Development and our many community volunteers including; Judy Young , Members of Phi Theta Kappa at Cayuga Community College Fulton, City of Fulton Alderwoman, Carmella Cavallaro and employees of the Walmart Super Center in Granby.
Additionally, food drives hosted throughout March by the Walmart Super Center in Granby, Fulton YMCA, New Image Fitness, and the City of Fulton contributed to our donation to area food pantries.
Their desire to support the United Way of Greater Oswego County is a wonderful expression of their dedication to their community, their concern for others and their willingness to ‘Live United.’ Thanks to the support we received from community members who attended and the generous donations of $500 from the Fulton Lions Club, the food drive at the Walmart Super Center in Granby, our Fourth Annual Stone Soup Too Luncheon raised more than $1,100 for food pantries in Oswego County.
Thank you for your support!
