Toad Suck Daze revelers may enjoy an early start to this year’s festivities at the 22nd annual Toad Suck Sunday Dinner benefitting senior programs in Faulkner County.
Dinner on Sunday is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Conway Senior Citizens Center, 1620 Donaghey Ave.
"These hours have proven to be convenient for individuals and family groups who stop by after church," said Debra Robinson, director of the Faulkner County Senior Citizens Program. "Folks will have most of the afternoon available for other activities."
This year’s menu includes chicken and dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls, cheese cake and a choice of drink (including a mysterious green beverage labeled "Toad Juice").
Children’s meals will include a hot dog, potato chips, cookie and a drink.
Prices are $6 for adults and $4 for children 4-12. Children 3 and under eat free.
Carry-out meals will be available.
A bake sale and silent auction will be held in conjunction with the dinner.
"There will be baked goods made by some of the best cooks in town," Robinson said.
The silent auction will feature numerous gift certificates and a variety of donated items.
Donations also will be collected for a chance to win a handmade quilt crafted by Lollie Horn, a senior center participant who has been quilting for years. Tickets are now on sale at the senior center and will be available at the door Sunday.
Faulkner County Senior Citizens is a United Way agency. For more information, call 327-2895.
Toad Suck Daze is Thursday-Sunday, May 3-5, at Toad Suck Square in downtown Conway.
