President of the McGrew Society Rosemary Bernatowicz said they have two soups they make every year but they try to trade out two or three each year.
“26 years ago one of our members at the time had attended a similar event in Morgantown and came to report to us and we were looking for fundraisers and things to do so we thought we would try it and successful we’ve done it for 26 years,” said Bernatowicz.
