Stone Soup

One of the easiest ways to build community is a lunch gathering.   But they can also be stressful to organize.  Stone soup is an answer.

It just takes a simple email.

You've heard the story.  A kettle, a rock, and some water.  One by one, the villagers added what they had and a great soup was made.

On Wednesday, there will be a roaster in the lounge with a vegetable broth.  Bring something to add to the pot and join us in the teacher's room for lunch.

Things to add could be chopped potatoes, carrots, rutabagas(what are those, anyway?), celery or a pound of cooked hamburger.  We'll have the roaster going by 8:30 so you can add things before the day starts.

And of course, if you'd rather bring a dessert, or bread and butter, you're welcome to do so.

Join us for a low-key holiday lunch.

Why not give it a try in January with your faculty or student group?   With all the stones that get thrown at education these days, a little bit of warmth and cheer may be just what the doctor ordered.
