- People in Boulder Junction dusted off their cook books to battle the lingering winter. But they didn't just get together to fight the winter blues. The event benefited the Community Food Pantry.The Lion's Club and Jim Tait Realty held first ever "Soup's On" cook-off at the community center. The turnout far exceeded organizer's expectations."We had 22 different types of soup. Everywhere from squash, to chicken noodle, to a gumbo, to a stroganoff. It was all wonderful," says Jim Tait, from Jim Tait Real Estate, and board member of the Boulder Junction Lion's Club.Around a hundred people came out to find out who the "Master Souper" of the Northwoods was. Donations for the food pantry were accepted at the door."By serving others and serving each other, as a lot of people were doing today, it really brings a community together. It strengthens not only the community, but the area, the county and the state," says John Ader, Boulder Junction Lion's Club President.The event collected nearly $800 and two crates of food for the food pantry.
