Hobo Soup Supper

Join us at the Picnic Shelter after the walk (after 4 p.m.) for another of our famous Hobo Soup Suppers!
By now you should know that this is one of our favorite ways to socialize when we are w-a-y out of town!

Bring canned goods or some meat or veggies to add to the pot; snacks, breads, salads or dessert to share with other walkers. Our accomplished soup chefs will stir up a pot of regular soup and a veggie version for those who prefer it.
Please no uncooked beans!

Bring a chair, your beverage of choice and NSTT will provide paper products and eating utensils.
