Another successful fish fry for First Lutheran
By Doug Schroder
PECATONICA – The fish fry put on by First Lutheran Church in Pecatonica on Friday, Oct. 10 was very successful. People were waiting in line to get in when the church opened the doors at 5 p.m. Tickets sold out and within 20 minutes all the fish purchased beforehand was gone, forcing volunteers to make a run to the store for more.
Altogether the approximately 200 people who attended ate 70 pounds of fish.
The church has been holding fish fries, corn boils, and ice cream socials to raise funds to have a chair lift installed in the church. As of now they are over half way to their goal of $100k.
