You can also purchase a handcrafted bowl for $10, donated by from North Granville Pottery, which has generously sponsored the event. The beautiful bowls come in an array of colors, and proceeds go to SVM.
“One of the great things about growing up in this area were welcoming neighbors. Visiting them on a cold winter day always included a bowl of the most delicious soup and a slice of their wonderfully warm breads to go with it! It was the ethnic diversity in the neighborhoods that allowed us the experience of sampling such an array of foods. We hope our First Friday guests will find our soup sampling as enjoyable and as delicious,” said Molly Biggs Celani, president of Slate Valley Museum’s Board of Trustees. Different members of the Museum’s community will be making soup for the event. Artisan bread will be provided by Rock Hill Bakery in Glens Falls, N.Y.
