-- A local church will be scrambling a little green into your St. Patty's Day
Changing Church is inviting families over this Saturday for some Green Eggs and
church will be opening its doors to the community for its third annual
"Green Eggs and Ham Day" celebration.
Pamela Wheeler says Green Eggs and Ham is being hosted in the spirit and

in March because it's before Easter usually so we were thinking St. Patrick's

says the event is designed with everyone in mind and encourages all individuals
to come out.

house donated for this specific event every year. A lot of the food was donated.
This year, I believe it's going to be chicken, sausage, hamburger patties,
rice, beans, potato salad. There's going to be face painting. Pawsabilities
(Animal Rescue) is going to bring a bunch of their puppies and let the kids get
to play and interact with some puppies. (There will be) cake walks, games,
activities, relay races. We are going to have a Cat in the Hat photo booth and
some of our members even dress up as Cat in the Hat characters," said
Wheeler says the event plus the food are free. She says Green Eggs and Ham Day
is yet another way to bring people of all faiths together in celebration of
family and community.
