MASON CITY, Iowa – Bring on the food!
It’s Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, and then Lent.
So before all the fasting begins one local church is serving its best, to fill everyone up.
St. John’s Episcopal Church is cooking up pancakes and folks love it.
More than 60 people stopped in for the morning rush.
Shirley Stoyles, a volunteer from the church, says she loves this day and the pancakes.
“Just having all the people come and enjoying seeing people, hearing people talk about pancakes, oh i always love pancakes,” said Stoyles.
Stoyles says serving food on Fat Tuesday has become quite a tradition for the church.
All proceeds go toward local ministry outreach programs.
