Shrove Tuesday means pancakes

SAUGUS - A Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Fellowship Hall at Santa Clarita United Methodist Church, 26640 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus.

The all-you-can-eat dinner will be presented by the Sunday Evening Children's Fellowship groups at a cost of $3.50 per person. Every ticket purchased in advance will come with ``Balloon Bucks,'' which can be exchanged at the carnival for prizes.

The custom of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday arose because of the need for using the eggs and fat that were originally prohibited items during the 40 days of Lent.
