Warm up this Saturday with Soup!

The time has come again for our annual Grant Wood’s Birthday Soup Smorgasbord! The celebration will take place this Saturday, February 11 from 11:00am-1:00pm at the KD Center in Eldon. You can enjoy an amazing array of soups, homemade bread, and some birthday desserts! Free will donations from the event will support exhibits and educational activities at the American Gothic House Center. Come celebrate what would be Grant Wood’s 121st birthday, have a wonderful meal, and support a worthwhile cause at the same time!
