Oolitic Kiwanis Cancels December Fish Fry, Announces New President

(OOLITIC) – The December Fish Fry from the Oolitic Kiwanis Club has been canceled. Due to the increasing amount of COVID-19 cases in Lawrence County, the group made the decision to cancel the event to protect the volunteers and patrons.

Earlier this year, Oolitic Kiwanis provided fish sandwiches to employees of both hospitals in Lawrence County

The January fish fry is tentatively scheduled for January 2, 2021, and the group will reevaluate as time gets closer to the event.

“We want to thank everyone for the continued support of the club. This year has been a challenge for everyone but with your help, we will have many successful fish fry’s,” said Leah Gross of Oolitic Kiwanis.

The Oolitic Kiwanis continues to grow with the addition of new members. One of the newest members, Atalie Klummp, has been announced as president for the group.

Atalie is one of the youngest and most active members and is always eager to lend a hand with many of the club’s service projects.

The club is proud to have younger indivduals take part in the organization.
