Thrivent Action Team of the St. Mark Lutheran Church of Shanksville is preparing for the advanced order soup sale with only 250 quarts being sold. The soup will be homemade vegetable beef and vegetable with no meat. Get your orders in to any St. Mark church member prior to Monday. They are asking if possible, that the person provide a clean and lidded and labeled quart jar when placing the order. The soup will be prepared Oct. 24 at the fellowship hall of St. Mark, on Main Street in Shanksville. The fresh soup can be picked up in the late afternoon of that day between 3 and 4:30 p.m. The preparation and making of the fresh soup will be in accordance to the COVID-19 guidelines. All proceeds will benefit people in need in the community. Many church members will be helping to prepare the fresh soup and then later the delivery of the orders. Place an order by calling Gayle Miller at 814-443-3497 or Alice Jean Musser at 814-267-2083.
