Mike Brinker bags dinners

Mike Brinker bags boxed dinners at the KC Hall's fish fry Friday, Feb. 19. The fish fry lasted from 4-7 p.m.

Lent is about self-control, but the county’s fish fries make the next 40 days of restraint easy to swallow. These Friday dinners are in abundance through the start of April.

If you are organizing a fish fry not on the list, please email cruze@emissourian.com, and we will update the list online. Until then, dig in; there’s plenty of fish to go around.
