Emmetsburg VFW Lenten Fish Fries

By Staff | Jan 25, 2021

Members of VFW Post #2295 are making plans for weekly Lenten Fish Fries set to begin Friday, Feb. 12.

Representatives from eight community organizations will host the weekly fish fries at the VFW Post Home in Emmetsburg.

• Feb. 12 – Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW

• Feb. 19 – Catholic Daughters of the Americas

• Feb. 26 – Iowa Lakes Student Senate

• March 5 – Knights of Columbus

• March 12 – Emmetsburg Rotary

• March 19 – Emmetsburg Kiwanis

• April 2 – Swim Team

Meals will be served at the VFW from 5 to 7 p.m., according to Terry Chamberlain, VFW Commander.

“People who come to the VFW for their meal will be required to wear facial masks,” said Chamberlain.

This year, due to the ongoing coronavirus, club members will be serving guests in the hall after they sit down at a table. People will not be picking up their meals cafeteria style, as in the past.

“When they come into the building, they will fill out a slip with their choice of food and take a seat. Servers will bring food to the table, along with individual bags of condiments and plastic silverware,” Chamberlain explained.

Choices with the fish dinner include: baked potato, corn, beans, and, mac and cheese.

Chamberlain noted, with social distancing in place, limited seating is available. There will be only 120 seats available at the VFW.

Carryout food orders may also be placed. For carryout/pickup, call 712-298-0883 after 4 p.m.
