Winners: Phil Roberts with his second place ribbon and Dale Hanaman with his "greatest" button.

A soup luncheon was served at the Rippey Library on Saturday, March 21.  Over 60 attended the luncheon of four soups, relish and desserts.   The four soups were prepared by three members of the Library Trustees ( Jean Borgeson, Dale Hanaman and Velda DeMoss) and the Librarian's husband, Phil Roberts.   They enjoyed a bit of competition attempting to get those attending to vote for their soup as the favorite.  Carole Reeves of Perry had made each of the chefs an apron.   By 2 pm all of the soup was gone and the votes counted.   Dale Hanaman was declared the winner with his Chicken Wild Rice -Sioux Soup.  Although Phil Roberts bribed several family members to attend, he could only place second!   Toni Roberts, Librarian and the board of trustees appreciate the support for the day and $500 will be added to the funds available to purchase books.
