Visitors to the Thorne Community Recreation Association on Sunday got to start their pancake feast early this year, as the Anglican church brought back a community event from nearly a decade ago.
In celebration of Shrove Tuesday, the Anglican Parish of Renfrew-Pontiac put on the pancake brunch after the meal returned last year, following an absence since 2011.
“[The brunch] was on till 2011, then we stopped for a few years,” said Reverend Carol Hotte, associate incumbent of the new area Anglican Parish of Renfrew-Pontiac. “Then we brought it back last year.”
Serving up pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage and all the trimmings, Hotte said the brunch was seeing a much better turnout this year than last, with the hope that they’ll continue to see it grow. Hoping to draw more people in this year, organizers adjusted the end time to help benefit guests travelling from further away.
