St. Paul's Episcopal Church Mardi Gras Celebration
Everyone is invited to celebrate "Shrove Tuesday" with all the revelry appropriate to the last day before Lent. The celebration will feature a Pancake Supper with music and dancing. The eating of pancakes on the day before Ash Wednesday has been a custom among European Christians since the early 16th century.
Created and served by St. Paul's parishioners, this family supper will include pancakes, ham, fruit toppings, syrup, fruit and juice. The Dukes of Dabob Dixieland Jazz Band will get everyone on their feet, including those who don't think they can dance! (Dabob refers to an oyster-rich area of the Hood Canal.)
There will also be a silent auction with proceeds to benefit summer youth and children's programs.
St. Paul's is located at 1020 Jefferson Street, at the corner of Jefferson and Tyler in Uptown Port Townsend. Suggested donation: Adults $10; children $5. For more information, call 360-385-0770.
