WE CAN DO IT, IF YOU WILL HELP

The annual Meals On Wheels Pancake & Sausage Breakfast will take place Sat. March 16 from 7-10 a.m. at Pegram United Methodist Church. The menu has been expanded at the public’s request to include waffles and bacon. As always, regular and sugar-free syrup and an assortment of toppings will be available. And for the first time ever, there will be “breakfast music”. The Meals On Wheels program depends heavily on the public support of this event since more homebound seniors are being fed than ever before in South Cheatham County. Your presence at this event will be very much appreciated.
