A different kind of ‘Souper Bowl’

A different kind of Souper Bowl was held at Oley Valley this year.

Seniors Kayla Hetrick, Kayla Maciejewski, and Evan Solley worked hard, making ceramic bowls for the Opportunity House’s 19th Annual Souper Bowl. This event has been held annually at the Crowne Plaza in Reading. Guests buy tickets for the Souper Bowl and experience an evening of taste-testing soups from some of the best restaurants and local eateries, while also receiving a handmade ceramic bowl made by students and teachers from local high schools and universities. All proceeds from the event support quality-of-life programs for veterans, adults, children and their families in Berks County. This year the event was held via curbside pick-up instead of dine-in. Not only was the event a bit different this year, the bowls donated by Oley Valley High School looked a little different as well. Some bowls were hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel, while others were printed with a 3D ceramic printer using the design of senior Evan Solley.
