Singleton’s store invites everyone to join us October 11th at noon for our 5th annual soup cook off. Bring your best soup down with your lucky ladle and a $10 entry fee. For those who aren’t chefs bring your appetite – you can be a judge! Judges taste at no cost but ask for donations – 100% of proceeds will go back into our community.
Prizes for the three top chefs-5 pounds of Singleton’s bacon is the top prize, with a Singleton’s hoodie 2nd place and a Singleton’s T-shirt for 3rd.
We also have an anonymous donor that matches whatever we make. This year we are donating to the Black River Good Neighbors, a non-profit organization that provides confidential, temporary food, clothing and financial assistance to those in need to return to self-sufficiency. BRGN serves individuals and families living in the towns of Ludlow, Cavendish, Mt Holly and Plymouth.
Also, we hope to raise funds to replace a memorial at the Cavendish Town Elementary School. Years ago a young boy attended that school was diagnosed with leukemia and died. In memory of him his teachers, classmates and friends planted a tree for him by the flagpole. Almost 28 years later it was cut down. We would like to work with the community to put something in its place to remember Riley and his battle at such a young age.
In the past this event has funded the Greven’s ball field after Irene, The Cavendish Recreation Department skate park, and Nolan, a young boy who has battled leukemia twice before he was 5, now he is doing fine. So mark your calendars – October 11th rain or shine. Matt Flinn will provide electricity to the porch and the Proctorsville Fire Department will provide the tables – thanks guys! Come on down and see your neighbors and new friends – lots of fun and no one will leave hungry! Thank you all that support us and our community – see you there!
