Pancakes were a Hit

We had an excellent turnout of neighborhood families to enjoy a Shrove Tuesday pancake supper - complete with sausages, crispy bacon and even a pink sauce as an alternative to maple syrup.  We then departed to the back yard for a traditional burning of last year's palms to make this year's ashes for Ash Wednesday.  Some of the same kids returned the next morning for a special program to begin the season of Lent.  Ashes to Go were distributed to neightbours in the early morning in front of the church - and down the street at Euclid and College to a wider public.
