On November 16, Philippi Christian Church (DOC) in Deltaville held a soup supper and silent auction to benefit the Middlesex County Volunteer Rescue Squad of Deltaville.
The event was exceptionally well attended, filling the Philippi Fellowship Hall to near capacity and emptying the many soup pots.
Items sold at the silent auction were donated by members of the congregation and by local businesses.
Members of Philippi who volunteer with the rescue squad and those who worked to make the event a success were acknowledged by Pastor June Haislip.
