The Elk County Commissioners donated a 20-gallon soup kettle valued at $2,000 to The Sacred Heart Parish's Social Committee Wednesday afternoon. Co-chairpersons Helene Burdick and Linda Brunner were at the Courthouse Annex Building to receive the kettle.
â€śI can't believe we are getting this,â€ť Brunner said.
The soup kettle was being stored in the Elk County Prison for a number of years and at one time was put up for bid.
â€śIt's a free-standing unit with a gas burner beneath it, it's a self heating unit like you would see in an industrial kitchen,â€ť said county commissioner Dan Freeburg. â€śIt actually has not been used at all, maybe one time.â€ť
