Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, is the final day before the commencement of Lent, a Christian season leading up to Easter Sunday.  Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain milk, butter and eggs, foods which were once forbidden during Lent.

   Everyone is invited to attend.
