Stone Soup Supper to celebrate Lanesboro Local


Fri, Sep 21st, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, MN- Lanesboro Local is putting on a harvest celebration and fundraiser, and the public is invited. Echoing the classic Stone Soup folktale about how a hungry community made a luscious soup when everybody contributed just a little something to the pot, participants are invited to bring some chopped vegetables to toss into the steaming cauldron of savory broth. Bring tomatoes, onions, herbs, carrots- whatever is fresh- to Sylvan Park in Lanesboro on Saturday, September 29 from 4-7 PM. A delicious soup supper with bread and dessert will be served.

Lanesboro Local is a nonprofit organization that strives to help a wide community of people throughout the region build a sense of community. The year-round retail Marketplace provides access to locally produced foods and artisan products at 207 Parkway Avenue N. in Lanesboro, across from the theaters.

Local doesn’t just mean Lanesboro; producers and shoppers from all over the region benefit from a permanent store featuring regional products. Whether you produce food and artisan items, or love to purchase what you need from neighbors, or someone who just loves a great harvest celebration, you are welcome to participate in the Stone Soup Supper.

While the soup simmers, there will be live music, a dramatic re-enactment of the Stone Soup story, and stone games for the whole family. You can build stone cairns, toss or skip stones, and do a little stone stepping. Meet local producers, and learn about accomplishments and future hopes for Lanesboro Local.

This event will raise funds to keep Lanesboro Local running strong through the winter season. Suggested donation is $20 for adults and $5 for kids. Soup ingredients must be added by 4:15, and at 5:30 soup will be served to all, with bread, beverages and dessert. In case of rain, the celebration will go on in the gazebo. Enjoy a great time and a healthy meal as you “Live Local. Live Well.”
