Knights plan fish fry events


There are also specialty meals, including an eight-piece shrimp dinner and a limited supply of baked cod which is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Admission to the fish fry is $10 per person for adults and $6 for children. This fee includes an all-you-can-eat or specialty meal. Onion rings cost an extra $4.

Becky Whisenant, executive director of CASA of Jefferson County, said her agency has been helped by the Knights fish fry program in the past.

CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate, is a nonprofit agency that assigns volunteer advocates to work with abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system.

The agency is dependent on donations and fundraising efforts to continue providing its services, Whisenant said.

“We greatly appreciate their support,” Whisenant said of the Knights of Columbus. “They have to choose only so many organizations (to help). We’re proud to partner with them.”
