Fundraising dinners around town

Fish fries, BBQ dinners, tamales plates, spaghetti dinners and sausage links. Nearly every Saturday of the year some charitable organization fries up a mess of perch, hand rolls hundreds of tamales, smokes tons of barbecue and ladles plates of spaghetti in VFW halls, SPJST halls, Catholic and Lutheran churches and kid sports leagues … and every single one of them is great food at a great price for a great cause. — Bob Darden
