For our February book, we decided on a work of fiction by John Grisham, "The Whistler", "a high-stakes thrill ride" while tracking down a crooked Florida judge.
We will meet at SALLIE AND FRED SCHUH'S house on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21st at 6:30 PM. The address is: 655 North Shore Drive, James Island, 29412. Call with any questions at 843-860-9358.
Hoping to see you all there. Enjoy the book!
A little history about Shrove Tuesday and pancakes…
The name Shrove comes from the old word “shrive” which means to confess. In the Middle Ages, people would confess their sins on Shrove Tuesday to begin the penitent Lenten season with a clean slate!
Shrove Tuesday is a day of celebration as well as repentance. Lent is historically a time of giving things up, so Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge. Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs (significant, flavorful food groups which were forbidden during Lent).
Please join us for our 2017 Annual Church Oyster Roast! Oysters will be provided by Jimmy Howe and hot dogs will be provided by the hospitality committee. We ask that everyone bring a side dish of your choice. Please RSVP by calling the church office at (843)723-9237.
