Winter Fiesta helps fund soup kitchen


Here’s an evening to put on your calendar: Saturday, Feb. 23, starting at 5 p.m. at the Polson Elks Club the annual Winter Fiesta celebrating JourneyBe’s Soup’s On & Family Table. This benefit acknowledges the 89,000 meals already served and its continuation.

Every year when I walk into Mission Valley Elks club in Polson for the celebration, I am delighted with the crowd from all over the valley. This shows the level of appreciation people have for the purpose of this event. The auction, the fun, fellowship, delicious food, lively music and personal satisfaction help continue a much-needed service to this valley.

The signs for the Winter Fiesta say there will be “an authentic Mexican meal” and Rob Quist live music with guitarist Craig Davey, starting at 8 p.m., and a live and silent auction. Tickets are $15 with meal.

At JourneyBe, under Rev. John Payne’s leadership, we are totally inclusive and welcoming to everyone. Soup’s On is a perfect example of this inclusive and compassionate service. So, let’s celebrate together our love of life, appreciation for our communities and the value of compassionate service at the Winter Fiesta on Feb. 23.
