Friday was the first of six drive-through Lenten fish fry dinners offered this year by the Perry St. Jude Council 1243 of the Knights of Columbus.
Dinner was served from 5:30-7 p.m., with pickup outside the St. Patrick Catholic School gymnasium. Vehicles formed a long line along Pattee Street before turning southward on Fifth Street in order to pick up their drive-through fried fish, baked potato, cole slaw, dessert and drink.
The food satisfied the body but left the soul hungry for the good fellowship of the sit-down events. The next drive-through fish dinner is Feb. 26.
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal charity founded in 1882. Now extending to several nations, the KCs support refugee relief, Catholic education, local parishes and dioceses and global Catholic causes. The group donated $185 million and 76 million volunteer hours toward charity projects in 2018.
