2013 Souper Bowl

by Paul Saulnier
February 3, 2013

February 2, 2013. Hundreds turned out to sample soups and desserts and support the Holliston Food Pantry, "Neighbors Helping Neighbors"

At the top of the stairs, Peggy Robertson and Bill Stickney checked in guests on their way to the auditorium converted to the dining hall.

 Next, you had to get past Steve Bradford and his right-hand man, Carl Damigella.

Servers worked in shifts. Above Placentino Principal Linda Weene worked next to Senator Karen Spilka, who was giving seconds to husband Joel.

Pam and Gayle made the rounds greeting eveyone who came to dinner, including Jared Adams.

Representative Carolyn Dykema takes off her apron as her shift ended.

The second and last shift of servers was just as busy as the first.

Meanwhile Sylvia Stickney stood watch over the dessert table, her specialty.

A wide assortment of breads were available thanks to Amy Porter and Pamela Watson-Hogan.

In addition to all the great food, there was a table full of items to be raffled off. Theresa Lamkin, with a little help from Selectman Jay Leary, oversaw the action.

Selectman Jay Marsden takes a break with his daughter Riley.

The real troopers and unsung heroes of the event were the kitchen crew. Working in what felt like tropical conditions, Bob Shore, Linda Ahronian, Kathy Shore, Melissa Kaspern and Jeanne Murphy prepared the soups throughout the night. According to Kathy, six diffferent soups of ten gallons each were donated to the cause.

The Holliston Historical Society was well represented as members filled this table and overflowed onto others.
