MINETTO – The Minetto United Methodist Church will again this year host a Mardi Gras full of fun and merriment to mark the time before the start of Lent.
The event will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the church on Feb. 24 at 7 p.m.
Serving as Master of Ceremonies will be Rick Sivers who brings his jokes and stories for everyone to enjoy.
Following a dessert intermission, Sivers will take everyone on a hair-raising journey on the roads of England.
He was last in England in December and in his rental car traveled around part of England, leaving him with the thought that he would “never drive in England again!”
Sounds of Brass will provide musical interludes before the show and during intermission.
Reservations for the Mardi Gras can be made by calling the church office at 315-343-3465 or signing up at the church.
