The Main Street United Methodist Men of Main Street United Methodist Church honored Henry Chester Boone, also known as Chet, at their Annual Pancake Supper Oct. 23.
Boone, a member of the Main Street Methodist Men, died at 81 in a highway accident a few weeks ago.
Boone, a chef, planned all of Main Street Methodist Church’s dinners.
“It’s a good tribute to him to have a nice event here because he was always spearheading this too. I might be the president, but these guys are the people that actually do it,” Wilson Clary, the president of Main Street United Methodist Men, said.
Clary said the pancakes were delicious.
“It’s good camaraderie. People know everybody. It supports our missions and supports the things we do,” Clary said.
Walter Robinson, Jr., a member of Main Street Methodist Church, said the supper is a good time for the community.
“It’s good fellowship. In this day in time not many people sit down and eat together. Everybody in there knows each other, so it works out really well,” Robinson, Jr., said.
The money made at the supper goes towards the church’s youth group summer mission trips. Cracker Barrel donated 65 pounds of pancake mix. Logan’s Diner donated the pancake syrup.
The Main Street United Methodist Men give money to United Methodist Committee on Relief, a hurricane relief group.
