Elks’ fish fry returns this Friday

Join the Elks Lodge for its famous fish fry July 12, serving from 4 to 7 p.m. For an all-inclusive price of $10 per person, you can enjoy an all-you-can-eat fish and sides of coleslaw, French fries or baked potato and dessert. For the non-fish lover, they offer a single serving of half a baked chicken, which includes all side dishes. Children eight years and younger eat half price. Children under three years eat free.

Elks are a nationwide community-service organization of well over a million American citizens. They love their country and desire to preserve its cherished institutions, traditions and values. They respect their neighbors and constantly seek to promote their well-being. They love and enjoy life and believe this enjoyment is increased by sharing it with family, friends and all with whom they come in contact. They bring encouragement, cheer and comfort to veterans throughout the United States in fulfillment of their solemn pledge: “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”

The Elks Lodge is open to its members and guests. For additional information about how the Elks Lodge helps the community and you are 21 or older, believe in God and are an American citizen, call the Lodge at 484-0150. They are at 1145 Genesis Rd., which is about half mile south of I-40. Lodge hours are noon to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Please keep in mind they have limited parking. So if you can carpool, that would be greatly appreciated.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
