If you're craving fish this weekend, then members of the Frank Foster Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3996 have just the right food.
Proceeds from the Saturday event will benefit the post's building fund, which is used to purchase flags, record books and other supplies. It also will benefit the Boys and Girls Club and LOVE's Kitchen.
Fish plates come with your choice of fries or hushpuppies, coleslaw and beans for $5. Fish sandwiches are $3.
Doing the cooking will be retired U.S. Army military policeman Robert E. Lee.
Frank Foster VFW Post 3996 was organized in September 1990 by Oliver Q. Foster and four other veterans. Frank Foster, Oliver's son, was a young Marine killed in Vietnam in October 1967.
The post has grown to 25 members since then.
Members of the post participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade and make an annual pilgrimage to Frank's grave in Greenville to tend to its dressings.
The post meets in the Kendallwood Building at Highland Park on the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Any interested military personnel can call Gordon at 482-5289 for information.
