Fat Tuesday is early this year and so it is time for the annual Monterrey Dinner at Great Bend’s First Congregational United Church of Christ, 3400 21st St., from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12. Tickets are $8 and $3.50 for children age 6 and younger; 3 and under free. Tickets are for sale at the door or in advance from church members, and take-out is available. An accessible door is located on the Polk Street entrance of the church.
This event includes a generous tostada-style dinner and delicious dessert of ice cream scooped over a banana topped with caramel/jalapeno sauce and cookie. The proceeds from the dinner plus donations that night will be sent to Haiti in care of Star of Hope, through its Ellinwood group, for education programs. Star of Hope is an organization that works to break the cycle of poverty and give people in the poorest areas tools to create a better future.
