WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (WVDN) – The Friday Lenten fried or baked tilapia dinner, sponsored by the Greenbrier Valley Council 8689 Knights of Columbus and held in downtown White Sulphur Springs, will feature a St. Patrick’s Day look. Dinners are held from 4-7 p.m. in the White Sulphur Springs Community Center behind Emanuel United Methodist Church, one block south of the Main Street Bridge.
“No, we will not be serving ‘green tilapia,’ but we are using more green in decorations and those wonderful homemade desserts we have been serving,” said Andrew Wrzosek of Waiteville, grand knight of Council 8689.
In addition, Wrzosek announced that the Knights’ half of the half and half donations drawing will be given to the St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church Altar and Rosary Society, that, prior to COVID-19, sponsored and served a corned beef and cabbage dinner on St. Patrick’s Day.
Also available during the dinner is the opportunity to win one or all four baskets for which the parish of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church is accepting donations. The proceeds are going to the Raise the Roof fund for a new roof on the 58-year-old rectory and office building adjoining the church in White Sulphur Springs.
The dinners, consisting of fried or baked tilapia, scalloped potatoes, coleslaw, hard rolls, dessert and drinks, are $15 for adults, 12 and under $8, under 5 free and an extra serving of tilapia for $5.
Proceeds go toward the community, youth, service, church and Council projects of the Knights of Greenbrier, Monroe, Pocahontas and eastern Fayette counties.
The dinners will continue March 17, 24 and 31 for this Lenten season.
