The Lions are getting ready, making all the necessary preparations and scheduling their Pancake & French Toast Breakfast served with Homemade Sausage. When, you ask. March 25th, Sunday starting serving at 7:30 AM and stopping at 1 PM. Where? At the Carver Village Hall is where you will find all this good food. Just follow your nose smelling all those delicious aromas. Veterans will be admitted free and have a delicious breakfast and good company. Adults can eat for $ 7.50 at the door, if you are really hungry, you can get a ticket in advance for $ 6.50. Kids can eat for $ 3 if they are six years old through twelve.

Fifth Saturday
It’s here again! It’s the FIFTH Saturday! This is an in-store event that occurs whenever there is a fifth Saturday in the month – an extra payday for some, an extra play day for all – and there are some businesses that think that this particular day deserves some celebration. The festivities begin at 9 AM. Throughout the day refreshments, hourly door prizes, special feature and a casual, fun atmosphere to mingle with friends or make new ones is the order of business for the day. Also, a special 5th Saturday discount is offered. Buy a 5th Saturday cloth tote bag for only ninety nine cents and any merchandise you can fit into this tote on a 5th Saturday from participating businesses you receive 20% off. ( check with Annette at Carver Country Flowers and Gifts and she’ll fill you in on all who is participating locally )
Remember the tote bags can be purchased anytime, but the discount only applies on the 5th Saturday!

Future Plans
News flash from Carver Country Flowers…A 2012 Carver Garden Tour is being planned. This will be a self-directed driving/waling tour of ten distinctive gardens in the City of Carver, Minnesota! WOW! A Carver Walking Tour booklet will be available and your “ticket” to the gardens is a stamp card to be stamped at each garden you visit. There’s a surprise at the end, but we’ll wait to tell you that. So stay tuned at Carver Current, Carver Country Flowers and Gifts and the Villager Tower for more information.

Not only will Carver-On-The-Minnesota be hosting the above event, they are also making plans for a Wine Tasting even in the Garden and Garden Market in the Park. So be sure to keep checking back and see what the latest updates are!
