First United Methodist Church held a Fat Tuesday pancake supper on March 4. Shrove Tuesday, also called Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, is observed in churches or cultures that follow the liturgical calendar, as a day of indulgence before the self-sacrifice of Lent, which begins today (Ash Wednesday). Pancake suppers are a traditional observance.
