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.
