“Soup is one of my specialties,” says the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Kansas City, which will host the Souper Bowl of Caring food drive and community dinner on Saturday.
I can remember telling classmates when the ever-so-common topic of the Chiefs came up about my father’s role in sports history. Wide-eyed and proud, I would say, “My dad was a cheerleader in the first Super Bowl!” Oftentimes, I was met with questioning eyes and confused stares. “There were male cheerleaders?” would often be the response.
The Souper Bowl dinner and competition, a food drive for the local food pantry, will begin at 5 pm Saturday at the First Baptist Church, 100 W. Wornall. Non perishable items can be dropped off as early as 3 pm.
Three kinds of chili will be sampled tonight at a special chili cooking demonstration tonight at the Red Bridge Library, 7-8 pm.
An Open House for the new Mourning Center at the Red Bridge United Methodist Church is planned for Sunday, January 26, from 9:30 to 10:30 am. All religious beliefs are invited.
