St. James School hosts their annual fish fry dinners during the season of Lent. Lent officially began on Ash Wednesday, March 6 and the fish fry dinners kicked off on Friday, March 8 on a fantastic note.
Joe Laurenza reported there were 388 dinners sold on the opening evening of the fish fry, a record-breaking number that tops any sales to date. A showing of tremendous amount of support from the community and beyond.
St. James School's gymnasium tables were filled with those dining in, enjoying the fantastic meal before them and the company around them.
The dinners will continue every Friday evening through Lent, ending on Friday April 19th. The fish fry begins at 4:30p.m. until sold out.
All monies collected from the fish fry dinners help St. James School and its mission to provide the best possible Catholic education to its students.
Many volunteers, under the direction of Bridgette LaPierre, come together to prepare, serve and assist in ensuring all attendees are satisfied and enjoying a delicious meal complete with all the fixings.
The dinners are sit in or take out with many options to choose from for the perfect meal. Big fish, small fish and shrimp with sides to choose from including a favorite of macaroni and cheese, french fries, coleslaw and roll and butter.
What meal is complete without dessert? The dinners also offer a delicious sweet treat to end with. All desserts are made by the ladies of St. James Church as well as parents of St. James students.
It is through a combined extensive effort that these meals are such a mouthwatering success. Be sure to stop in and give your taste buds a satisfying delightful treat.
