SPCA hosts Stone Soup Oct. 28 fundraiser

SoVaNow.com / October 16, 2013
It’s time again for the Lake Country SPCA’s annual Stone Soup Supper, which will take place Monday. Oct. 28 at Clarksville Presbyterian Church, 520 Virginia Avenue in the fellowship hall.

Supper will be served from 5-7:30 p.m.

There is no charge for the homemade soup, bread and dessert served up each year by LCSPCA volunteers. However, donations are gratefully accepted, particularly this year as the LCSPCA renovates its new shelter facility on Highway 15 South next to the airport.

For several years, Doug Jones allowed the LCSPCA to use the warehouse next to his Clarksville Ace Hardware store on Virginia Avenue as a headquarters and shelter. Unfortunately, the SPCA outgrew the space due to the large number of homeless cats and dogs in Mecklenburg County. Therefore, the organization began its search for a new and bigger facility.

Last month, the Marks family agreed to sell two acres and an old warehouse on U.S. 15-S to the LCSPCA, contingent upon the organization obtaining the appropriate zoning designation. With rezoning completed and permits in hand, LCSPCA has begun renovating the building.

Says Charlotta Howell, who serves on the LCSPCA board, “We are always grateful to the people in Clarksville and surrounding towns who show their support for us by coming to the Stone Soup Supper, and by making a voluntary contribution. The event continues to be one of their most popular fundraisers.”

Howell encourages everyone to bring his or her friends and family to the Stone Soup Supper, and help the LCSPCA move into its new home.

It is not necessary to bring your own bowl, but soup bowls can be purchased before the event at The Galleria in Clarksville, or on the night of the event at the Presbyterian Church.

For those who cannot attend, take out is available.
