It’s a big year for the ladies of the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary as they celebrate 30 years of the annual Celebrity Chefs Tasting Luncheon. The milestone was discussed, along with many other items of business, at a recent mid-morning coffee at the riverfront home of Marilyn and Pete Carpenter.

The highlight of the meeting, aside from Danishes, scones, and other elegant pastries, was a guest appearance by Southside Baptist Pastor Gary Lee Webber. Webber shared a story about his adventures ringing the Red Kettle bell for the Salvation Army at the holidays. With a touch of humor and some important morals to his story, the pastor engaged the group about the meaning of service.

This year’s big anniversary will be highlighted by Celebrity Chefs from all walks of the faith-based community in Jacksonville. It is scheduled to take place March 31, at the Prime F. Osborn Convention Center, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
