Title supplied by cataloger. Shrove Tuesday is the term used by some Protestant denominations for the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. It marks the last day of "shrovetide", a season that developed after the Protestant Reformation, simular to the Catholic Carnival tradition. It became known as Pancake Day, originally because making such foods used up ingredients such as fat and eggs, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during fasting associated with Lent. Photograph caption dated March 2, 1957 reads, "Plan pancake supper. Members of committee of ASK Club of St. Michael and All Angels Church perfect plans for fifth annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. From left, Mrs. Harry Smith, Mrs. Don Henrie and Mrs. John Land."
