The Stephenville Knights of Columbus begin their annual Lenten Fish Fry on Friday, Feb. 16, at Newman Hall.

As part of this year’s weekly event, the Knights are continuing the “40 Cans for Lent Campaign.”

The community is invited to contribute one can of food for each of the 40 days of Lent. Food will be distributed to local pantries for immediate use and to replenish depleted supplies from the recent holidays.

Donations will be accepted at the Friday fish fries at Newman Hall, St. Brendan’s and St. Mary’s churches, and KSTV.

The weekly event will run from 5-7 p.m. Fridays through March 23.

The meal will consist of fish, cole slaw, beans, hushpuppies, French fries, tea and dessert.

Prices this year are $8 for seniors and children under 12 and $10 for everyone else. That is for all you can eat.

Take-out service is available by calling 965-5693. Orders may be picked up at the back of Newman Hall on Centennial Street. All take-out orders are $10 per plate.

Local organizations benefiting from part of the proceeds each week include:

Feb. 16 - Stephenville Senior Citizens Association

Feb. 23 - TREAT

March 2 - HOPE

March 9 - CHOICES Clinic and Life Resource Center

March 16 - Dublin Senior Citizens
