The Bloomingdale Ruritan hosts a fish fry fundraiser the second and fourth Fridays of each month, year round. On Thursday, February 8, 2018 volunteers including member Jim Smallwood began getting ready for this week's fish fry by hand-making peach, cherry and apple fried pies - a popular $1 add-on for many regulars who come to the event. The meal itself includes choice or combination of fish, chicken and shrimp, fries or baked potato, slaw, and hushpuppies. Price: $9 eat in; $8 carryout with no drink. Service begins at 11 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m., eat in, carryout, and delivery available to area plants, businesses and shut-ins. "This is our biggest fund raiser and all our funds are used to make our community a better place to live," Smallwood said. "Education and scholarships awards are coming up and they are our greatest expense. We need the funds to support these activities." The Bloomingdale Ruritan is located at 3232 Van Horn Street, behind Bloomingdale Baptist Church off Bloomingdale Road near Ketron. Call 423-288-8863,
