Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

March 5, 5:30-6:45 p.m.
Volunteers and Revelers Needed
The annual Pancake Supper will be March 5 in the parish hall. Come and eat all the pancakes and sausage you can and enjoy music and pancake races. Traditionally, this is the day people eat up all the foods they can’t have during Lent – butter, meat, eggs, and wine – and have the last big party until Easter. There will be projects for the kids beginning at 5:30 p.m., with dancing for everyone, followed by singing our last “Alleluia.” Supper will be served from 6:00 until 6:45 p.m. If you can help shop, cook or clean up at the supper, please contact Marie Monroe. Come and have the most fun you’ll have until Easter.
