February 9
Vestry Meeting
Episcopal Churches are governed by rector and the parish vestry.  It's a shared leadership.  Some would generalize it by saying that the clergy person is concerned with the parish's spiritual welfare and the vestry with its temporal welfare.  At the first meeting after the Annual Meeting of the parish, the vestry meets to elect officers and orient newly elected members.  This will be done February 9th at 11:30 am.  These are public meetings.

 
 


February 25
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
This ancient annual event arose as families, anticipating the fasting of Lent, cleaned out their cupboards of rich food stuffs that would lead to temptations.  Today it's about good food and the general craziness of pancake races.  The acolytes will cook and serve pancakes of various sorts together with sausages.  Serving begins at 5:00 pm.
