The Vinton-Shellsburg Band’s annual Soup Supper will be held this Friday, January 13, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the high school cafeteria.

“This is our band’s main fund-raiser each year and we hope to have great attendance this year as always,” says band parent Randy Scheel. “This is a home game for our boy’s basketball team versus Center Point-Urbana.  The cost is $6 per person and children under 5 eat free.  We will be serving chili, chicken noodle soup, relishes, pies (several varieties including chocolate, apple, pecan, etc!), coffee and milk.  Funds we receive for this event go towards the purchase of band instruments, supplies and services.  Many local businesses also donate food or money towards this event. As much as anything, we want people to come hungry, even those making the trip from Center Point, Urbana, and the surrounding areas.  As of now, the high temperature on Friday is 17 degrees, or as the weatherman would say, perfect soup weather!”
