Shrove Tues­days

Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

ShroveTues­days also known as Mardi Gras,the day be­fore Ash Wed­nes­day, the first day of Lent Chris­tians are en­cour­aged to give up some­thing for Lent and to eat plain sim­ple food. As a re­sult, many uses up rich in­gre­di­ents such as but­ter, milk and eggs on Shrove Tues­day and what eas­ier way to do that than by mak­ing pan­cakes. On March 4, the Coat­i­cook Golf club was the site of the an­nual pancake sup­per spon­sored by St. Stephens’ A.C.W. and friends. Rev­erend Bar­bara Win­tle asked the bless­ing. The menu was pan­cakes, hash browns, ba­con, sausages, var­ied sal­ads, home­made rolls, baked beans and of course maple syrup with cof­fee, tea and cold drinks to ac­com­pany de­li­cious deserts. There was an at­ten­dance of ap­prox­i­mately 150 per­sons. The A.C.W wishes to thank the Golf Club, vol­un­teers, those who do­nated food and all those who helped in any way and to thank ev­ery­one who came and we hope to con­tinue this tra­di­tion for years to come.

Bar­bara Bel­lows Sec. St. Stephens A.C.W.
