February 16, 2012|Anne Weatherholt | Around Hancock

The Friendship Banquet and Auction, previously scheduled for Saturday at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church has been postponed.

The event has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 24, same time, same location. Tickets already sold are good for the new date.

Movie day planned

On Saturday, the Hancock Library in Widmeyer Park will show the movie “Kung Fu Panda 2” (rated PG). The free film begins at 3 p.m., and refreshments will be served. To register, call the library at 301-678-5300.

Shrove Tuesday pancakes planned

Shrove Tuesday always means pancakes in Hancock, especially if you stop by St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church Tuesday between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. at the Parish Hall at Church and High streets.

Tickets cost $5 for adults, $3 for those ages 6 to 12, and are free for those 5 and younger.  This is the feast before the fast of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday.

Ash Wednesday service planned at St. Thomas’

Ash Wednesday services will be held Feb. 22 at 7:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, including Holy Communion and Imposition of Ashes. 

The community is invited as Lent begins.

Quilts in the making

News from the Sewing Basket, at 64 W. Main St. in Hancock, is that it has purchased a new Gammill Statler stitcher — a computerized quilting machine. 

The machine will quilt a variety of designs using a long-arm, which makes it ideal for those larger quilts. 

The community is invited to a demonstration Friday, Feb. 24, at 2 p.m. or Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. 

For more information, call 717-860-4778. 

Dinner and auction tickets available

Tickets for the Hancock Rotary Club dinner and auction, to be held Tuesday, April 10, are now on sale.

The grand prize will be $1,000. 

The dinner takes place at the Hancock American Legion on East Main Street. Tickets cost $40 per couple. 

Proceeds from the event will fund scholarships for graduating high school seniors. 

For tickets, call Deborah Cohill at 301-678-6605 or Dan Murphy at 301-678-6635.
