Souper Saturdays' heat up life in Upper Jay

UPPER JAY As the temperature dips below freezing, people in Upper Jay are enjoying a bit of homemade warmth. Souper Saturdays kicked off last weekend at the Wells Memorial Library in Upper Jay on Jan. 5. Dozens of people stopped by the small library, electing either to sit down and dine with neighbors, or take out their lunches. "Its a social occasion, and brings people into the library," said Board member Ellen Metcalf, one of the event coordinators. The library will host the event every Saturday through March. For $3.50, people are offered a 12 ounce bowl of soup, and a slice of fresh bread. Metcalf, Sylvia Norton and Jan Ward each prepared a homemade soup, offering attendees a choice of beef barley, Jamaican carrot and white bean vegetable. Metcalf said the soups would change every week, though there would always be one vegetarian offerings. Upper Jay resident Meda Romanowski said she enjoyed the event, since it was a opportunity to get out during the winter, visit with friends, and not have to worry about making lunch.
