Linton Elks to host free soup lunch on Saturday

The Linton Elks Lodge will once again host a free lunch for the community on Saturday, May 2nd. A menu of potato or chili soup will be available from 11am to 1pm at the Elks Lodge facility located on Highway 54 East in Linton (just West of the Phil Harris Golf Course).

Patrons are asked to pull up to the front door to place an order. Volunteers will provide your order to you in to-go containers.

This is the second community lunch that the local fraternal group has hosted. Linton Elks served over 200 free spaghetti dinners on April 11th. Meals were served to employees of Greene County General Hospital, Linton Fire Department, Linton Police Department, and Glenburn Home.
