Troop 707 continues their tradition of selling their "Annual Shrove Pancake Supper" tickets in the Fellowship Foyer of Calvary Episcopal Church. Since 1966, Boy Scout Troop 707 has flipped and served roughly (give or take a thousand) 12,000 pancakes! Please support our Scout Troop by purchasing your tickets now and join in the pre-Lenten fun on Tuesday, Feb. 12, in Calvary's Parish Hall.
In the medieval and modern Christian period, especially in Britain, pancakes were made to use up stored items prior to the period of Lent fasting beginning on Shrovetide. Since eggs were forbidden foods during Lent, making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday was a good way to use up eggs before Lenten fasts began.
