WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS (WVDN) – The traditional Lenten fried or baked tilapia dinners, served in the White Sulphur Springs Community Center behind Emanuel United Methodist Church in downtown, will begin Feb. 24 from 4-7 p.m. and each Friday through March 31.
The meal consists of tilapia, scalloped potatoes, coleslaw, hard rolls, choice of drinks and desserts.
“We held the price down as much as we could considering inflation,” notes Andrew Wrzosek of Waiteville, grand knight of the Greenbrier Valley Council 8689 Knights of Columbus, the sponsoring organization.
Eat-in or to-go dinners are available at $15 for adults, $8 for children 12 and under and under 5 years old are free.
“We are offering an extra piece of tilapia for an additional $5,” Wrzosek added.
“This is the first time we have offered eat-in dinners since the Lenten season in 2020, offering take-out only for past two years, and we are pleased to offer these methods of service once again,” Wrzosek said.
Proceeds from the dinners go to the community, youth, church and service projects of the Greenbrier Valley Council which consists of members from Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Monroe and eastern Fayette counties.
The most recent major project was purchasing and distributing 96 new, children’s winter coats in the four county area in cooperation with the Family Resource Network of Pocahontas County, the Wellspring of Meadow River Country, Family Resource Network of Monroe County, Alderson Elementary School, Smoot Elementary School and White Sulphur Springs Elementary School and gently used winter wear through Wellspring, Family Resource Network of Monroe County, Lewisburg/Fairlea Food Pantry and the Donald Davis Memorial Toy Fund of Summers and Western Greenbrier County.
