German pancake and sausage Dinner
Tuesday before Ash Wednesday each year.
The day before Ash Wednesday activity at the church hall starts with a family style dinner of pancakes, sausage, applesauce and doughnuts from 5 to 8 p.m., and ends with German music by the New Hanover Deutschmeisters from 6 to 8 p.m. The cost for the evening is $8 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-12. Children under 6 are free. In keeping with German tradition, children will dress in costume and go “grebbling” door to door to collect dough-nuts, then come back to win votes in a costume contest. Grebbling starts at 5 p.m. in front of the church.
