Fish fry at Forks will feature family recipes

The Historic Forks of the Wabash will hold its sixth annual spring fish fry on Saturday, May 20, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Richardville Room at the park, located at 3011 W. Park Drive, in Huntington.

The all-you-can-eat dinner will feature fish and chicken prepared by Dan’s Fish Fry. The remainder of the meal will be prepared by Liz Sanders and PJ Eddie using favorite family recipes. It will include oven baked beans, coleslaw and applesauce. Dessert will be a choice of chocolate chip, peanut butter or molasses cookies.

Carryouts will be available.

After dinner, patrons are invited to walk the Lime City Trail and enjoy the gardens and spring growth surrounding the old Wabash-Erie Canal towpath.

The gardens were planted and are cared for by the Master Gardeners of Huntington County. The trail was completed in 2009 as the trailhead of Huntington County Trails System. It is maintained by Huntington Area Recreational Trails Association.

Proceeds from the dinner will be used to benefit educational programs. The Historic Forks is a not-for profit organization whose mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the past of the Historic Forks site in order to interpret and teach the local cultural history.

Advance tickets for the fish fry will be available at the Forks during office hours from 9 a.m. to noon or by calling 356-1903. Board members and other volunteers will be selling tickets.

Tickets may also be purchased at the door.
