William Casteel/Newcomerstown News
M-M-Good! A slogan that been popular around the world for many years and exclusively associated with Campbell's Soup. Port Washington resident Faye Welsch knows just how good the Campbell's products are. Welsch started collecting Campbell Soup memorabilia when she was about 10 years old. She said she sent for a pair of celluloid salt and pepper shakers that were replicas of the famous Campbell Soup kids; the cost of the shakers were a soup can label and 25 cents. She has recently loaned her collection of 80 plus items to the Port Washington Historical Society for a Campbell's Soup Memorabilia exhibit. Many local residents may know Welsch as she had taught in the Port Washington Elementary School for many years. The collection will be on display for a least another month according to Historical Society President Loretta Couts. The exhibit is located in the historical Town Hall and can be viewed on each Wednesday from 1 to 3 p.m. Couts said other days or times to visit can be pre-arranged by calling 498-8597. Welsch is pictured on the left holding the salt and pepper shakers she purchased in 1938, while Couts is pictured on the right holding a rare tin kaleidoscope that looks like a soup can, and features the Campbell kids inside.
