This year, Easter falls on March 27.
That's as early as it has been since 2008.
Flowing Oil Café's traditional Easter dinner will be even earlier.
It will be served Saturday night, January 9.
That's because the team that usually serves the meal in April will be cooking the meal on January 9. That team prepares ham, baked sweet potatoes, string beans, corn, applesauce, and dessert.
Nearly eight years ago, volunteers began serving free community meals in Quarryville.
At first, the groups had trouble attracting a dozen people to the twice-monthly Flowing Oil Café dinners. Those numbers have risen steadily since that first dinner was served in April, 2004.
