Today is Shrove Tuesday ...
Shrove is a form of the English word ‘shrive’, which means to obtain absolution for one's sins by way of Confession and doing penance.
Traditionally, pancakes were eaten on Shrove Tuesday, which immediately precedes Ash Wednesday, as a way to use up eggs, milk, and sugar before the fasting season of Lent commenced.
In that tradition, there are several Pancake Suppers planed around the region on Tuesday, including at the Willingdon Recreation Centre in support of the Willingdon 4-H Multi Club.
Willingdon 4-H Multi Club Leader Brenda Homeniuk talks about her club.
Tonight’s Pancake Supper at the Willingdon Recreation Hall goes at 5:00 PM.
