Patch gives you a rundown of what's going on around the community.

1. Mardi Gras Party

3. Paczki Day

Paczki Day kicks off from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12 at Good Samaritan Parish at Eighth and Melrose Avenue in Ambridge. The plain sugared home made donuts can be ordered in advance by calling 724-266-6010 for the one-day sale. Walk-ins are allowed too, but in previous years, the treats have sold out before 2 p.m., so the parish highly recommends ordering in advance. Donation is $4.50 for half dozen or $8 for a dozen.
