Shrove Tuesday - Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday - Pancake Day!!

The day before Lent begins... At our Church we have the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. This year we had to host it at our temporary downtown storefront location since the major renovations on our church building are still going on.

It turned out to be one of the best crowds we've had in the last few years... but I think the fact that there wasn't a major snowstorm tonite also helped over previous years!

Lent, which starts tomorrow, usually is a "season" of self-denial, more prayer, worship events, etc... well, I guess you could say I started some self-denial early since John and I, along with Randy and Sue gave up our Tuesday Nite "Support Group" dinner at Tubbys and had pancakes instead of our lobster or shrimp dinner ...yep, that was indeed a sacrifice! *lol* But the pancakes were delicious too!

Here are a few photos from tonite...

My Dad was part of the Pancake Crew, again washing dishes and helping out, along with Bob Britt, who has been part of the Crew for over 70 years! His son, Mark, took over as "head chef" for this year's event.

Ron and Mark had to hustle to keep up with the pancake eating guests!! Dad takes a break from dishwashing to enjoy some pancakes too!

Thanks to the men for all their work in our Pancake Supper!!
