Soupuary (and pottery making)
by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager
I’ve decided to rename January. From now on, it shall be called Soupuary. Because now that Mother Nature has remembered that we apparently don’t live in South America (where, you know, it’s actually supposed to be summer) and has brought back cold temperatures to the Carolinas, a hot bowl of soup is one of best things to look forward to.
January is host to our annual Soup on Sunday. This year, it falls on the last day of Soupuary, the 31st. More details to come about this mind-blowing event in another post, but suffice it to say that many things must get done behind the scenes to be ready that day.
Like the pottery. We’ve already told you about the awesome staff, parents, and kids at Charlotte Country Day School who help us out every year by making creative, fun bowls. Yes, they contribute a huge chunk of what we need, but we still need more of them to fill up those tables in the pottery room.
This is where you come in. Do you harbor a secret artist inside your soul? Can you look at a lump of clay and see a gorgeous bowl that’s yearning to be free? Then we need you!
Come to Carolina Clay Connection (2132 Hawkins Street) this Sunday, Soupuary 17th from 2pm until 4pm for a pottery “play day”. You don’t have to have a lick of experience. Jinny Hargrave, owner, will be there and she’ll help you make an absolute masterpiece for Soup on Sunday. Space is limited, however, so make sure to call (704.376.7221) or email Jinny to reserve your spot.
January (the boring month after the super-exciting holidays) conjures up words like “cold”, “gray”, and “blah”. Soupuary sounds fun. And warm. And delicious. I’m telling ya, I’m on to something here . . .
