Team Empty Bowls would like to thank everyone who helped with this year’s Empty Bowls Event: Students, parents and community members in making ceramic bowls and mugs; businesses, teachers and families who made our soups and desserts; volunteers who helped set up and take down and clean up; silent auction organizers from the Pagosa Mountain Hospital and during the event itself; auction items donated by local businesses and local potters. Thank you to the Pagosa Springs Elementary School for letting us host this year’s event and the support of the Archuleta County School District. Lastly, to everyone who came to the event to buy the bowls and to eat soup. The bowl is a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and the world. The money raised will go to our local food banks.
Tessie Garcia, Karen Siclair and Joanne Irons
