As I write this article on Valentine’s Day, the one event that seems so fitting for this week is “Soup for the Soul.”
What a wonderful group of truly caring people the “Hospice of Mercy” people are. It is not a job that just anyone can do. I say “thank you” to the merciful souls who have the drive, determination, compassion and love to do it.
“Soup for the Soul” takes place tonight from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Ross Aragon Community Center. I hope you will all come by and give a little bit of your soul to this great event. One never knows when Hospice of Mercy may help someone we love and care about.
The Ross Aragon Community Center will be closed on Feb. 21 in observance of President’s Day.
