We just got back from Westside Career Center’s annual Soup Luncheon. This is a wonderful event! The students make soup bowls that are then sold for money to give to the Lydia House.

Along with the students and faculty of the school, several adult visitors from the Central office, District 66 School Board, and other agencies, including Superintendant Dr. Ken Bird joined in for a simple meal of soup and bread with water or lemonade. The meal was meant to be an example to these students of what the less fortunate may have for lunch on a given day.

This was the 5th annual Soup Luncheon. The event was started in 2004 and was by Mr. Brian Vance after he attended a conference and decided to step up and do something to make a difference.
