Palm Sunday Brunch at AUMC


The Contemporary Life Class of the Avondale United Methodist Church sponsored its annual Palm Sunday Brunch fundraiser on Palm Sunday from 9 a.m.-12:45 p.m.


As a regular attender, I have come to look forward to this annual event, both for food and fellowship. The fare of sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, fruit, and a hearty assortment of baked goods is always tasty and hearty.


The tables were nicely decorated with budding assortment centerpieces.  But one of my favorite parts of the ambience each year is the live piano music of Susan Dowden. She always has a good assortment of secular and sacred classics that are the perfect aural accomaniment to the meal. I have included one clip from the brunch here:


From the pastry table I want to feature pictures of two items — the excellent scones, and the “bacon and eggs” treats.


No meal is complete with beverages, so I should also mention the beverage table and its fare of hot and cold drinks. Finally, I want to mention that all this goodness is for a good cause — all the proceeds support the ministries of the Contemporary Life Class throughout the year. A definite win-win situation for us all.
