Tuesday, February 16, 6:30 p.m. - Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner
The Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner will be sponsored by Boy Scouts Troop 424. No cost - donations accepted. The day before Lent starts is Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day. Traditionally, Christians gave up meat, fat, eggs and dairy products for Lent. This was the last chance to use up some of these foods before Lent began so they used to make them into pancakes, using up all the milk eggs flour and good stuff like ham and cheese.
