At Empty Bowl Event

Bowls and soup were going fast as over 180 people in the first half hour streamed through the doors of the Christ Church in Cooperstown for the annual Empty Bowls event which benefits the local food pantry. Hungry crowds came to try the many different soups offered by 10 area restaurants and  seven individuals who in all created over 40 gallons of soup. Above, Amy Zoltick serves a bowl of curried butternut squash soup with wild rice edamame to Stephanie Adams. At right, event organizer Kathy Chase enlists helps from Diane Detrinis, to refill a crockpot with her Thai chicken and rice soup. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Bowls, Great.  Soup, Great.  But Those Twins!

The bowls were great.  The soups were great this noon at the seventh annual Empty Bowls luncheon, hosted at Christ Church to benefit the Cooperstown Food Pantry.  But the hit of the event was Cheryl Wright's twin granddaughters, Rosalie and Meara.  They are daughters of Geoff and Flannery Foster of Fly Creek.  (Jim Kevlin/allotsego.com)
