Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Pancakes aren't just for breakfast!  If you love the tempting aroma of sizzling sausage and the decadent taste of pancakes smothered in butter and maple syrup, then you're in for an extra special treat.  This year's Shrove Tuesday pancake supper will be held on February 17, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.   The burning of last year's the Palms will take place prior to sitting down to supper.  Be sure to save room for a piece of traditional Kings' Cake, for you may be the lucky recipient of a baby Jesus.  One will be baked into each cake.  This free-will offering event will surely be filled with fun, fellowship and loads of Mardi Gras tradition.
