Featured Event: Operation Read Pancake Dinner

Operation Read's pancake fundraiser is not the only place you can eat pancakes and sausage between 7 a.m to 7 p.m. today at the Palestine Senior Activities Center, but its cause certainly is the most worthwhile. Organizers are seeking to raise $30,000 this year to place books in the homes of kids and free libraries all over Palestine—through donations, sponsorships, and, of course, ticket sales for the dinner. Tickets are $6 for adults, $3 for children 10 or younger, or $20 for a family of five. Supporting literacy never tasted better. Tickets available at the door. Call 903-724-5358 for information.
