 Get your appetite ready for the annual Community Fish Fry at Summer Days.  

The fish fry is a tasty part of the Lac La Biche County summer weekend event that runs from July 29 to 31. 

The fish fry comes with a history of success ... and tables full of fixings,  said Sue Ward, the president of the Lac La Biche Rotary Club, the sponsors of the tasty event. 

"We are prepared for 300- which is a lot of fish"

- Sue Ward LLB Rotary Club president

The Community Fish Fry will be held at the Lac La Biche Agricultural Grounds on Saturday from 5-7 pm — right after the trick-riding competition.  The meal will cost $10 a plate — and is worth every penny as the long lineups over the years clearly indicate. 

“We will be serving — obviously—  fish, but also coleslaw, round rolls with butter and desert,” she said. “The fish is fantastic, battered ... very tasty. It’s a weekend favourite every year. 

Ward and the volunteer Rotary members are expecting to serve up more than 300 meals —  so come early, she says, if you want to indulge. 

“We’re prepared for 300 – which is a lot of fish — so if 400 show up, 100 people will be hungry so come quick!.” 

Thanks to the donation of fish from the Plamondon Co-op and the Summer Days organizations support, the proceeds raised will help the Rotary Club continue to give back to the community and internationally, she said. 

“We give back to the community as they need it, from organizations that need funding…for schools, scholarships, book projects and a lot of youth projects too,” she said, explaining that the event also helps to draw attention to the work the Rotary does in the community and around the world.  “It’s about having exposure for the Rotary Club so we can give back to the community. It increases our exposure, shows what the Rotary club is up to in the community… .We’re happy to be helping the community and running this fantastic event that we have annually.”
