Trinity Episcopal Church was voted the “Top Chef” in the “Coming Home Soup Fest” that was held the evening of Nov. 11 as part of the conclusion of Shepherdstown’s 250th Anniversary celebrations.
The soup that won the award for the Church was a Chicken Corn Chowder. It was selected as the best soup by 29, or nearly 40 percent, of the 75 people who voted.
Church members who worked on the soup project received an award certificate from 250th Anniversary Chair Meredith Wait on Dec. 1.
The award presentation is shown in the accompanying photo taken on the steps of Trinity Church.
