With the season of Lent beginning this week, the public is invited to attend a Shrove Tuesday meal in Fenelton.
This pancake and sausage dinner is planned for this Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Happy Hunters Sportsman Club on Chicora Road.
For a suggested donation of $7 for adults and $4 for kids under 10 years old, those attending will have a choice of buckwheat or regular pancakes. This event will also have a Chinese auction and is sponsored by the Fenelton United Methodist Church.
The word “shrove” means to obtain absolution for sins by confession and doing penance. Lent officially begins the day after this dinner on Ash Wednesday.
