Time-honored tradition offers stone soup
Superior Wisconsin 1226 Ogden Ave. Ste. 1 54880

The Superior-Douglas County Family YMCA is serving Stone Soup to the community.

According to the story, a stranger comes to a village and is turned away when he asks for some food. He then pulls out an iron caldron, fills it with water and places on a fire. He then pulls out a stone and drops it in the water. The villagers are curious and when the man is asked what he is doing. He says he is making stone soup. But what is stone soup without vegetables, meat and barley. People bring ingredients to make a very tasty soup they all share.

The moral of the story is by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved.

Stone Soup has been a long-standing tradition for the YMCA childcare center. Children at the Y bring in items to create a yummy soup, which is then served for lunch. This year the Y is opening its doors to share in this tasty tradition 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday. Stone soup is served, and everyone is invited to gather around the table or get a container to go. The YMCA will be accepting donations of cash or nonperishable food items for donation to the local food shelf.

For more information, call 715-392-5611. Come partake in a time-honored tradition and share in the warmth of the Thanksgiving season.
