Families invited to celebrate Dr. Seuss, St. Patty's Day with Green Eggs & Ham Day
Posted on 3/15/2019 2:07:00 PM.


(Seguin) -- A local church will be scrambling a little green into your St. Patty's Day weekend. Life Changing Church is inviting families over this Saturday for some Green Eggs and Ham. The church will be opening its doors to the community for its third annual  "Green Eggs and Ham Day" celebration.

Sister Pamela Wheeler says Green Eggs and Ham is being hosted in the spirit and celebration of not only the children's book by Dr. Seuss but also St. Patrick's Day which is this Sunday. Wheeler says the idea for the event was triggered simply to have fun and to come together as a community.


"We were sitting around brainstorming finding out what kind of fun thing we can do in March because it's before Easter usually so we were thinking St. Patrick's Day but everybody does that. So, we were thinking because of March St. Patrick's Day -- Green --  and I was like what about Green Eggs and Ham and it just blew up from there," said Wheeler.


Wheeler says the event is designed with everyone in mind and encourages all individuals to come out.


"We have live music. We have free barbecue. We have a bounce house. We get a bounce house donated for this specific event every year. A lot of the food was donated. This year, I believe it's going to be chicken, sausage, hamburger patties, rice, beans, potato salad. There's going to be face painting. Pawsabilities (Animal Rescue) is going to bring a bunch of their puppies and let the kids get to play and interact with some puppies. (There will be) cake walks, games, activities, relay races. We are going to have a Cat in the Hat photo booth and some of our members even dress up as Cat in the Hat characters," said Wheeler.


Again, Wheeler says the event plus the food are free. She says Green Eggs and Ham Day is yet another way to bring people of all faiths together in celebration of family and community.


"It's free to the community. Anybody who walks up is more than welcome to eat and join in the festivities. We have no boundaries. Anybody and all are welcome," said Wheeler.


The event will be held Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The church is located at 842 E. Pine St. Anyone needing a ride to the event are also encouraged to contact the church in advance at 830-463-9637.
