(OOLITIC) – The Oolitic Fish Fry will be Saturday, August 8th from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at 220 Hoosier Avenue in Oolitic.
Come out and support the Oolitic Kiwanis Club and purchase a fish, chicken or tenderloin sandwich for only $3 each. Corn dogs are available for $1, french fries are $1.50 and onion rings are $2. Water or cans of soda are also available for $1 each.
The event is strictly run by volunteers and the proceeds are given back to the community.
The group awards at least one scholarship a year to a local high school student. On many occasions, the Oolitic Kiwanis has been able to award several scholarships for high school students preparing to head to college.
In addition, funds are used to help local residents within the community. Some projects have included building a ramp for a local resident confined to a wheelchair and in April the organization provided fish sandwiches to all hospital workers at both hospitals in Bedford.
Community service has always been the mission of the Oolitic Kiwanis Club.
