Enter your soup for a super cause

Two dozen people will travel to Haiti to work in an orphanage that was newly constructed last year.

Fundraisers and friends will stir the pot Saturday to find out who makes the best soup in the County.
Cooks and tasters are welcome to attend the Soup’s On Cook-off Saturday, Feb. 4 at 4 p.m.
The fundraiser for a group of teens and adults going to Haiti on a mission trip will be held at the new youth HOPE Centre in Picton’s Industrial Park.
David Inch, Youth Pastor at the church, along with Gospel Crusade Of Canada, is taking a group of 24 people to Haiti to work in an orphanage (newly constructed last year), and to do some ministry with children and youth.
Lead by Dave Gingrich, president of Gospel Crusade of Canada, it is the largest and youngest mission group to date.
“It will be challenging, but also very rewarding,” says Inch. “There are 10 youth and 14 adults going. There will be a ministry youth team and an adult work team that will be living there for two weeks in March. We really feel that the youth (and adults) need to see and experience how others less fortunate than ourselves are living. We will be living, eating, working and adapting to the Haitian way of life. We are there to spread the love of Jesus, just share with them, and love on them.”

The Soup’s On Cook-off will also feature a silent auction and the music of Trinity with a guest appearance by Fraser Hardman.
To enter your soup, contact Kim Inch at 613-476-5174 or Laurie Inch at 613-393-5278.
The event costs $5 per person and you get a bowl of soup, a dinner roll, a drink and a dessert.  The soups will be judged by three local restaurant owners who have agreed that the winning soup will be featured as “Soup Of The Day” for a week in their restaurant.

The cook-off will be held at 9 McFarland Drive – formerly, the Picton Martial Arts building and now the location of a Youth Drop-In Centre, called The H.O.P.E Centre. The event is also the kick-off of opening the youth centre to the public. There is a gym, pool table, ping pong tables, air hockey tables and a table top arcade game, social area and a canteen.
Future plans include an electronic gaming room, coffee counter, and an internet cafe, instructional rooms, weight/workout room, and a woodworking room. There will be a schedule at the drop-in centre so kids and youth will know when to come out for some fun and social time.
