The Knights of Columbus St Virgilius Council 185 announced Friday morning that their next two Friday Knight Fish Fry events have been canceled.

In an email shared with The Newtown Bee, Grand Knight Jeff Leha offered an update on a few events, including the annual Lenten fish dinners. The March 20 and 27 events have been canceled, but the final Friday Knight Fish Fry is still tentatively scheduled for April 10.

“We are going to hold onto Good Friday with a decision to be made in the near future,” Leha wrote in his note.

Leha also noted that it would be helpful for anyone who is able to take the “opportunity to get carry-out or delivery from one of the outstanding establishments in town who need our help. Support those that have supported us so generously in the past.”

Last weekend’s Irish Cabaret, another Knights of Columbus event and fundraiser, was canceled. The 2nd Annual Run4Hunger, another Knights event, has been postponed to September 12, Leha’s note indicates.

“We believe we need to let the town heal a bit and this was the best date available not in the middle of summer to keep the run in Fairfield Hills,” he wrote.

The annual Friday Knight Fish Fry series of meatless Lenten dinners offers guests full fresh cooked dinners featuring entrees of fried fish, baked fish, fish tacos, BBQ shrimp po’ boy, or eggplant parmesan, with sides of french fries, coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, and clam chowder, plus soft drinks and dessert.

Dinner is $10 adults, $6 children.

Dinner will be served from 5 to 8 pm. Those purchasing dinners will be directed upon arrival at 46 Church Hill Road to where they should go for payment and pick-up.

Reservations are not available, but additional information can be obtained by calling the St Rose Rectory Office, 203-426-1014.
