Climax Ham and Egg Supper celebrates 25th year
Published 8:02 pm Tuesday, February 3, 2015
While the Ground Hog may have seen his shadow predicting 6 more weeks of winter, folks in Climax are gearing up for spring; this means it is Ham and Egg Supper time in Climax.
The first spring supper began as a Pancake and sausage event and it didn’t go over very well, so it was changed to a ham and eggs with grits, and biscuits. The event was such a success, sausage, gravy, and jellies were added.
The spring suppers were started as a way to have some income for the upkeep of Cedar Grove Cemetery. It continues today for this purpose, after expenses the proceeds from the supper go for the upkeep of the Cemetery. It is true this is important for the Cemetery; however, after a long cold winter this spring event is the coming out for the social season in Climax. People from all over come home for the Easter holiday and visit Climax on Thursday before to enjoy fellowship with old friends and family members while eating Ham and Eggs at the “Chitlin” Barn.
The first planning meeting for the supper is to be held Tuesday, Feb. 24, at the Climax Community Club at 7 p.m. All volunteers are asked to be at this planning session, and if you would like to volunteer to help cook or anything else at the supper come to the meeting and talk to the committee. Volunteers are encouraged and needed.
The Supper will be Thursday April 2nd before Easter Sunday at the “Chitlin” Barn on the Swine Time Grounds.
Tickets for the plates are $9, and can be gotten in advance from any committee member or one may purchase them at the door. There will be a drive-through-window or one may eat in at the barn.
So mark your calendar for the first planning meeting of the supper Tuesday, Feb. 24, at the Community Club house, and then the supper on April 2.
