The Richmond Masonic Lodge annual fish fry will get underway at 10:30 a.m. Friday, November 16th.  Spokesperson Ron White says they hope to raise more than $1200 with the proceeds benefiting kids in Ray County.

“We support the backpack programs; we do cost-share with our grand lodge of the state of Missouri for different children of need in Ray County.”

The funds may be used to purchase “clothing or school supplies or hygiene products, things like that.”  White encourages people “to call us if they have a special need for children or know of somebody and we’re always out there and ready to help.”

The fish fry combo meal is $8, a family bucket of fish will cost $18 and a family bucket of chips is $4.  The lodge will serve food through 7 o’clock that evening.
