Baby, it’s cold outside, which makes a piping hot bowl of homemade soup sound all the more tasty.

Volunteers and board members of the Stephenville Historical House Museum are prepping for the 6th annual “Soup-to-Go” take-out supper from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28, at the museum.

Proceeds benefit the Oxford House Preservation Project and will be used this year to finish the parking lot, sidewalks and make underground utility connections.

“This is always a fun event and we look forward to it every year,” said board member Dianne Wilson. “We start cooking early that morning and cook all day. We appreciate the  community’s support for the Oxford House renovations and the support of the museum.” 

The meal will consist of potato soup, seasoned crackers, salad and dessert for $10.

Wilson said last year’s event raised $5,000.

A limited number of tickets will be sold at the museum’s office, The Home Place at ACE, Stephenville Senior Citizens Center or from any board member.

Those who purchase tickets will pick up their meal in a drive-thru at the Center Grove School on the museum grounds.

“Drivers will be met in front of the school by ticket takers who will deliver their meals to the vehicle, so that soup purchasers need not exit their vehicles,” Wilson said.

In the case of inclement weather the event will be postponed until the following Monday, Feb. 5.
