A long-time 19th Ward tradition will continue with the Palm Sunday Breakfast on April 5th at the Presbyterian Home, 256 Thurston Road. The event is from 8 to 9:30 am, and the featured speaker is Mayor Robert Duffy. Westminster Presbyterian Mission cosponsors the occasion together with St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and the Roman Catholic Community of the 19th Ward. Proceeds from this function will support the 19th Ward Community Association.

Tickets are $7 per individual, $11 for a couple, or $15 per household. They are available at the Community Association Office, 216 Thurston Road (328-6571), or from Chris and Bettie Lindley at 235-2217.

The tradition of the 19th Ward Palm Sunday breakfast goes back over sixty years, originally being hosted by Westminster Presbyterian Church. After a hiatus of a few years, the event was resumed. The featured speakers focus on key community concerns for 19th Ward residents. The Presbyterian Home underwrites the occasion, enabling all the money to go to the 19th Ward Community Association.
