The annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, 425 E Spring Street in downtown Kingman, on February 9, 2016 from 5-7pm in the Fellowship Hall. Donations will be gratefully received.
Ash Wednesday is the next day and the beginning of Lent, during which time it's common to fast from rich foods and meat. The custom of pancake suppers on the last day before Lent, grew out of a desire to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting begins. The event at Trinity Church each year is always a popular community gathering.
