Shrove Tuesday at the Franciscan Study Centre

Gathered at Franciscan International Study Centre for our traditional 'pancake party', all of us did a star turn. Catherine did a duet of John Denvers 'Country Road', with one of the FISC lecturers Kathleen Ann, also from America. Betty did an African royalty dance with fellow African students Annette, Alice and Jabu, and also an individual song in her native tongue. Sarah read a poem about an 'Irish Immigrant.
