Lenten fish frys return to Palatine Legion Post
The Palatine American Legion Post 690, Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion are holding a series of fish frys during Lent.
The fish frys, which are open to the public, will be from 5:45 to 8 p.m. Fridays. Fish frys will be Feb. 21 and 28; as well as March 6, 13, 20 and 27 and April 3 and 10.
The fish frys are served upstairs in the banquet hall at the post, 122 W. Palatine Road, Palatine.
According to Erica Bartnicki, project chair, the post will be serving crunchy, battered cod dinners for $12 for adults, $5 for children younger than 10, and free for kids younger than 3.
Bartnicki said dinners include a garden salad, fish, Tater Tots, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw, rolls, coffee and dessert. Children ages 3 to 10 can request cheese pizza in place of a fish dinner.
A full-service bar is available for drinks in the banquet hall and downstairs in the Legion's clubroom.
Proceeds benefit Legion Family Charities.
"We are always looking for new members for the American Legion," said Bartnicki. "If you are interested in supporting those individuals who have defended our country, then the Legion is the organization for you. If you have any questions on the American Legion, Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of the American Legion or any of our activities, call us at (847) 359-1606."
The American Legion Family consists of the American Legion, the Sons of the American Legion and Legion Auxiliary. The American Legion and Legion Auxiliary began in 1919, while the S.A.L. was created in 1932.
These organizations are committed to mentoring and sponsoring youth programs in their communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to fellow service members and veterans.
