Enjoy a homemade lunch while helping less fortunate children in the community on Tuesday.

The Knights of Columbus, Edelman Meats, Mattoon Market, Butch’s SuperValu and Lakeside Market will host a soup and sandwich lunch with proceeds to benefit The Giving Tree.

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $5. Choose from chicken soup or chili, with or without noodles, along with a ham sandwich. You may dine-in, pick up or have it delivered.

Tony Kautza installs a handsome bird on the tree for the City Park bandstand being decorated by members of the Music in the Park Planning Committee and families. Kautza, a fan of the summer series, donated the tree and families who enjoy the concerts are encouraged to add decorations during the Christmas season. He would like to continue the tradition next year with the possibility of a winter tree celebration in the park.
