soup and pieBoyden, Iowa — A soup and pie supper is planned to benefit an Ashton man who suffered a stroke this past summer. The supper is at the St. John Lutheran Church of Boyden. We talked to St. John pastor Daniel Hart, and he tells us about Eric Johnson.



Johnson and his wife Kim have one child at home near Ashton.

Pastor Hart says the church has a soup supper every year.



The supper is this Saturday, October 25th at St. John Lutheran Church of rural Boyden. That’s at 3941 280th Street, four miles north of Boyden on Kennedy Avenue, and a little west. They’ll have homemade soups and pies, and they’ll be serving from 5:00 to 7:30 PM. Thrivent Sioux County will provide supplementing funds.

THE STORY: When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, thirty-five-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to bag a buck. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.
