As the long winter winds down and spring approaches in the Holts Summit area, there is excitement in the air as St. Andrews Knights of Columbus members begin preparing for their annual series of fish fries during the season of Lent. Each Friday during Lent, parish workers begin gathering to prepare and serve the food to the large crowds, sometimes exceeding 1,500 hungry people. Even though there are large crowds, they have perfected serving, with little or no waiting in line.
The menu consists of all you can eat; catfish, cornbread, baked beans, coleslaw, french fries, or baked potato. This annual event started many years ago, draws local folks plus people from Jefferson City and surrounding areas. We at McMichael Realty, are often asked weeks in advance, when will the fish fries begin?
This year Lent begins on February 14th and the fish fries will start the following Friday and continue for five Fridays during Lent. So, if you live in Holts Summit, Jefferson City or the surrounding area, mark your calendars and prepare for a treat!
