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.
“I can't believe we are getting this,” 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.
“It'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,” said county commissioner Dan Freeburg. “It actually has not been used at all, maybe one time.”
