Transcript 8 MONTROSE VOICE / FEBRUARY 7, 1986 Neighborhood o POLITICAL SEASON KICKS OFF Some 60 political candidates and members of the Houston Gay Political Caucus celebrated the filing deadline for the Democratic and Republican primaries Monday evening at the Eagle Crest Inn. The event, undampened by the thunderstorms, raised about $500 with proceeds to benefit the 1986 primary projects of the Republican anti Democratic Committees of the Houston GPC. Of the 31 political candidates attending, both Democratic and Republican, 10 candidates will be vying for county positions with about 21 seeking precinct chairs. Bering Pancake Festival Set for This Saturday The fundraiser began juBt an hour after the primary filing deadline. The $15 per person donations will aid the two committees as they begin preparing for the upcoming primaries, as well as for the general election in the fall. In the photo at left, David Jones, local attorney, talks with Ken Lanier, a candidate for district judge.

(Connie Woods photos) By Connie Woods Montrose Voice Staff Reporter Passersby will no doubt smell the sausage and bacon Saturday morning, Feb. 8, as members of the Bering Memorial United Methodist Church begin cooking for their annual pancake festival. Beginning at 7 a.m. tomorrow, the doors of the l_H_-year-o]d church will open for the 36th Annual Mardi Gras Pancake Festival. The "all you can eat" feast comes complete with bacon, sausage, pancakes, and drinks for $4 per person. Proceeds from the event benefit the church building fund. During the day, the festival will feature an array of entertainment including bagpipes, a fortune teller, a magician, music and singing. Also, door prizes will be awarded. The growth of the festival has been "remarkable," according to Fred Cobbs, a church member and part of the festival's cooking committee. "Last year we served about 1200 peo ple," he said. Based on the successful growth of the festival from year to year, the festival is expected to exceed last year's attendance. Although the cooking begins about 5 a.m. Saturday morning, church members have been gearing up for the event for about a week, including the preparation of Borne 200 pounds of sausage to be served hot off the griddle on Saturday. The traditional pancake event was started 36 years ago by the Methodist men's group at the Montrose-area church. However, the volunteers are no longer just members of that organization. Several other changes have occurred during the years, according to "cooks" Eva Tune and Mary Potthoft. The kitchen has been expanded and, in the last year, new griddles have been added. . Bering Memorial United Methodist Church is located at 1440 Harold at Mulberry St., south of Westheimer and west of Montrose.
