It’s that time of year again. Lent is just around the corner. However, before that we will be enjoying the 2016 Pancake Supper. There will be a couple of changes for this year’s supper. The first is in whose putting it on. This year instead of simply being a St. Philip’s event, the Pancake Supper will be a joint effort by the three St. Mary’s Road Parishes. Those parishes are St. Mark’s, St. Mary Magdalene, and St. Philip’s. The second is the location of the supper. For 2016, we will be holding the Supper at the Norwood-St. Boniface Legion, Branch #43, which is located at 134 Marion Street.
2016 Bringing a new direction for the Pancake Supper
The reason for the change of locale brings us to the third big difference in this year’s Pancake Supper. This year, the funds raised through the supper will go to help support the Aulneau Renewal Centre’s new Family Sponsorship program. This is a new relatively new program from the centre. It recognizes that often the people who are in the greatest need of counseling services are unable to gain access to the services because of difficult financial situations. The Family Sponsorship Program will go a long way to helping to alleviate the stresses caused by a lack of funds. We hope that not only will the 2016 Pancake Supper raise funds to support this project, but it will help to raise awareness in the broader community of the availability of such a resource. Please consider taking the time on February 9th to come out, enjoy some pancakes, and help make much needed services available to people who need them.
Last year there were pancakes, sausages, syrup, whipped cream, and a berry compote on the menu. This year we hope to make the menu even bigger. Tickets are $7.00 per person and $17.50 per family. We will be including gluten-free pancakes as part of the supper.
