Sorority to host soup luncheon fundraiser for Fitch Camp

DOWAGIAC — The sisters of Xi Delta Mu Sorority, along with Kappa Beta, will host the annual soup luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 14, at the First United Methodist Church on North Lowe Street.

A donation of $5 will provide a lunch of chicken noodle, cheesy potato or beef barley soup, cut veggies and homemade dessert. Carry out orders are also available.

All proceeds will benefit E. Root Fitch Camp.

The camp at Cable Lake has been a tradition for thousands of Dowagiac youth since 1941. The camp is open to Dowagiac elementary and middle school students, with attendance, transportation and meals, costing only $1 a day.

The camp provides nature, sports, art and game activities.

Fitch Camp is made possible and accessible to the children of Dowagiac by the support of many volunteers, contributing donors and organizations across the community, and former campers from across the country. Fitch Camp is a nonprofit agency dedicated to providing quality supervision, leadership and fun activities to the children of Dowagiac.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be on Feb. 16 at the same time and location.
