Pennies flow at Ebenezer UCC party

Friday, April 12, 2019 by Elsa Kerschner ekerschner@tnonline.com in Local News

The social hall at Ebenezer United Church of Christ, New Tripoli, was filled with anticipation as penny party players gathered April 6 seeking to win a variety of prizes.

Chairwoman for the event was Anna Lou Fritzinger. Eileen Breininger arranged a basket raffle for the same day.

“It’s a lot of work but fun,” Breininger told The Press.

A special breakfast basket cost a $1 per chance.
