Groundhog event a real taste treat

bporterfield@pvdemocrat.com — It’s a tasty tradition for a Pauls Valley church preparing to hold an annual community get-together that’s almost five decades old.

This time around the trick is the 47th annual Groundhog Breakfast offered by PV’s First United Methodist Church will come on its holiday namesake.

”This year it will actually be on Groundhog Day,” said church member Jennifer Samford.

The event is planned from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 2 at the church located on North Willow.

Although the all-you-can-eat breakfast treats are the real crowd-pleaser here, Samford says there’s so much more as the event brings people together and gives them a chance to catch up or just visit for a while.

”It’s a great community event,” she said. “It’s a great place to catch up with someone you might not have seen for a while.

”So just come and sit and visit and have a great breakfast.”

The tradition of the breakfast started with the church’s Crusaders Sunday school class.

Stepping in more recently to hold the event are members of another class, Sunday Morning Live.

“This is what we do every year. It’s a fundraiser for our Sunday school class,” Samford said.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children under 12.

Those tickets can be purchased in advance for Sunday school class members or at Sharpe’s in downtown PV or the Reynolds Recreation Center.

Tickets can also be purchased the door on the day of the breakfast.
