Mardi Gras Brunch

by the Rev. Bob Olsenimage

Please join the folks at St. George’s for a Mardi Gras celebratory brunch.  All are welcome for this festive brunch immediately following the 10:00 am service on March 2nd, 2014.  We’ll have plenty of food and festive music as we celebrate together before the season of Lent.

Ever since Sandy and I joined St George’s back in the spring of 1990 they have held their annual Mardi Gras brunch the Sunday before Ash Wednesday, rather than the traditional Shrove Tuesday pancake supper.  I know they’d been holding the Mardi Gras brunch long before we joined, having a set menu and recipe for the strata’s.  I asked a couple of the old timers why the Mardi Gras brunch instead of pancakes on Tuesday and the answer was simply – that’s the way we’ve always done it.  So shrouded in the mists of St George’s history is why we started doing a Mardi Gras brunch rather than pancakes, but it is a tradition that folks don’t question and I can’t remember anyone ever suggesting we do a pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday.

So once again, after our 10:00 service on March 2nd   we will hold our annual Mardi Gras brunch.  Tickets are available through the Women’s Guild and the office, Adults $5 and Children $3.
