 Homemade Soup Sale December 10

   Want to know the best place for a quick lunch during Hawley’s Winterfest celebration on Saturday, December 10?  That’s easy…..

   Just stop in at the Hawley Public Library starting at 11:30 a.m. for a cup of homemade soup!  Making a choice might be tough since over a dozen crockpots of steaming hot homemade soups will be lined up ready to serve.

   Headed by a traditional favorite, Transylvanian Goulash, the menu will also include Chicken Noodle, Broccoli Cheddar, Stuffed Pepper, Pike County Beef Barley, Pumpkin, Potato Corn Chowder, Taco, and two which are gluten free and vegan: Roasted Butternut Squash and Tomato Basil.

   “Our Soup Sale has become so popular,” says Soup Sale chair Dona Schmalzle, “that we urge our hungry supporters to arrive early for the best opportunity to choose their favorites!” Smaller cups of soup will be sold for $3.00 and larger for $5.00.  Bottled water will also be available for sale.

   As in other years, the sale will continue until all of the crockpots are completely empty – usually in less than two hours, according to Mrs. Schmalzle.

"A library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never-failing spring in the desert." ~ Andrew Carnegie

Your gift will help the library serve its community in essential ways--through reading, technology, programs and comfortable space for all ages. There are also many ways to give--as a donor, as a volunteer, and in the form of a planned gift for the future. We thank you for your generosity and support!
