AROUND THE CHURCH
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper Serves 220
Trinity's Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper last week was a sell-out, serving 220 meals, (including 80 take-outs). That equals 660 pancakes, 20 pounds of bacon, 20 pounds of sausage, 9 pounds of butter, and lots of syrup! 

Forty volunteers (20/shift) flipped pancakes, cooked meat, bussed tables, served drinks, set up, and cleaned up to make it happen.

Mardi Gras decorations and music added added the finishing touch to the festivities, enjoyed by many friends & families. 
George & Bella Rudo (above) organized, orchestrated, and oversaw this year's successful Pancake Supper.
You can purchase Tour and Luncheon tickets, and you can
now make your Pillar contributions, on the tour's website .
Tour of Homes Auction Committee
Welcomes Your Donations
The Trinity Tour of Homes Auction Committee is running full steam in preparation for the upcoming event. Donations are coming in, but there is always room for more.

Our Baskets and Collections have proven to be big sellers, and we are always in need of baskets and containers as well as items to fill them with. If you received a gift basket for Christmas, how about passing the basket along to us? Did you receive a bottle of wine that you would like to contribute?

Someone from the committee is always ready to receive your donation on Sunday morning or at another time by appointment. If you would like schedule a time to drop off an item or have a question about a donation you would like to make, please give one of us a call.
