Eat a Stack of Pancakes to Support Pantego Lions Club

Saturday, January 31

The Pantego Lions will roar into the new year with their semiannual Pancake Breakfast. Although pancakes have global appeal, Americans have raised this simple treat to iconic status, and the Lions know exactly how to cook up the rich and delicious delicacies to perfection. Kids will enjoy face-painting, and they can take home a memento of the occasion as the HappiTymes clowns magically twist and shape balloons into all sort of animal creations.

Valentine’s Hat Exhibit


Fielder House Museum

Through February 14

Back when it didn’t take much excuse for a woman to buy a new hat (these days this gotta-have-it tendency is more about shoes), women often invested in a Valentine’s Day Hat. The new exhibit of Valentine’s Hats at the Fielder House will run through February 14 and was curated by Geraldine Mills. Some of the hats date to the late 1800 and early 1900s.
