The monthly Community all-you-can-eat Pancake Breakfast will be held Saturday, March 2. Come join us for scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon and ham, grits, fruit and beverages. As a special treat, orange whole-wheat pancakes will be served in addition to the regular pancakes. Breakfast is served from 8:00 – 10:30 AM. All profits from the breakfast are donated to a worthy cause. This month, proceeds will be given to the Red Bird Missionary Conference in Eastern Kentucky. Rather than a fixed price, we are requesting that guests, upon arriving, make a generous donation to this very worthy cause. Come out and join us for a delicious meal as we continue our pancake breakfast tradition which began in 1970.

The next breakfast will be on Saturday, April 6.

In this comedy of errors, catastrophes and pratfalls an English touring company carves a trail of theatrical chaos from one provincial venue to the next. Observed both onstage and backstage Frayn’s play within a farce is a hilarious send-up of the hopes, aspirations and delusions of a beleaguered director and his dysfunctional cast and crew careening towards its final curtain.
