Good Friday is the last chance to get a taste of the Dundalk Knights of Columbus’ “famous fish fry” dinner. The council will offer its final fish fry of the Lenten season March 29 at the council hall, 2111 Eilers Avenue in Dundalk.
Joe Witomski, chairman of the popular event, said the meals are prepared by a team of workers – mostly seniors in their 60s and 70s. It’s been going on for eight years, he said.
“We call our group the ‘we team’ because there is no ‘I’ in our group,” Witomski said. “We all work together. We strive to serve a great fish fry dinner so that everyone enjoys it very much.”
The meal consists of a “good portion” of fresh Alaska pollock, seasoned steak fries, coleslaw, roll with butter, dessert, coffee and soda. The cost is $11 or $12 for carryout. Free dinners are offered to clergy and religious, members of the military and emergency services.
“This is our way to show appreciation for what they do for us because we need them in our lives,” Witomski said.
“We are happy to say that the profit from this event is donated to churches, schools and other charities,” Witomski said, noting that the council is in the process of donating $2,000 each to Sacred Heart of Mary, Graceland Park; Sacred Heart of Jesus, Highlandtown and St. Rita, Dundalk. $500 each will be donated to St. Casimir School, Canton and Our Lady of Hope-St. Luke School, Dundalk.
“This is what charity is all about,” Witomski said.
The dinner runs from noon to 6 p.m.
