JT’S Catawba Café will continue with a Saturday Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Saturday Celebration will include a Donut Eating Contest at noon (register by 11:30 a.m,) a Creamer Stacking Contest, and raffles for gift certificates and t-shirts, in addition to other activities, including entertainment by JT’S “Donut Boy”.

For more information call 419-960-7399.
