Souper Bowl I

The “Bowl” of the Bold North... The rules of the Souper Bowl are simple. Each “player” brings a hearty-sized batch of their favorite homemade soup, letting the host know what they’re planning to make ahead of time so that six different chicken noodle soup recipes don’t end up crashing the party. Soups, stews, and chilis are all permitted in the Souper Bowl, as long as they pass the all-important spoon-ability test (absolutely no forks allowed).

We will add an element of friendly competition to the Souper Bowl. We will print out blank brackets and put similar soups against each other—like vegetable soup against a minestrone, or clam chowder against corn chowder. Each guest votes on their favorite in each of the brackets, tasting as many soups as possible, until the field gets narrowed down to two final competitors. At that point we can declare the winner of the Souper Bowl trophy!

If you don’t want to make soup you can still participate! Taste the variety of soups and vote. Open to the community, bring a friend!

Multi-Generational Volunteer Program

Multi-generational programs offer people of different ages the opportunity to come together and share time with one another. Such programs can provide benefits to all involved and foster life-enhancing growth, understanding, and friendship. 

Program Summary

The Centre’s new multi-generational program connects senior volunteers with students from the Centre’s 3 year old preschool and 4K programs. Teachers and seniors will work together once a week to provide students with hands-on experience working on art-projects and group reading time. The volunteers share their wisdom, insight, and friendship with the youth. The interaction is beneficial to both the students and the volunteers.

Program Goals & Outcomes

The primary goals of the multi-generational program is to help students learn to work on social skills and increase their interaction with caring adults. Senior volunteers can enjoy sharing their love of crafts and reading; seeing the students’ knowledge and skill sets increase.

Volunteer Requirements

The typical commitment is to volunteer an average of 1.5 hrs per month. Each volunteer will be required to fill out a background check before being placed in a classroom with students. Please check with Sam Nolan, Senior Programs Coordinator, to see what time slots are available.  Classes are held Monday - Thursday from 8:15 AM - 11:30 AM.  We will work with individual schedules to come up with a day/time that works for both parties.
