Clermont Lions Club prepares for first Fish Fry of the season

CLERMONT — The Clermont Lions Club will be putting on the first Fish Fry of the season from 5 to 8 p.m. April 4 at the Clermont Lions Community Hall, 3201 Tansel Road, a block south of U.S. 136.

The Fish Fry dinners are $8 for adults and a $4 child’s menu is also available. Proceeds go back to the Clermont Lions Club.

There will be entertainment by a central Indiana bluegrass band and usually about 300 people attend. The Fish Fry is held about three or four times a year.

Walt Miller, a Lions Club member, said there are plenty of homemade dishes to go with the fish.

“Come to have a good meal of fish or pulled pork sandwiches, if you don’t like fish,” Miller said. “There will be a variety of desserts and sides such as beans and applesauce too.”

The club will also be collecting eyeglasses at the event.

“We collect old eyeglasses and distribute them to a group that works with people in Mexico and other countries around the world,” Miller said.

In addition to the fish fry, Miller said the club is involved in a lot of community events and programs.

“This will be the 64th year for the annual Clermont Rodeo,” Miller said. “The club provides leader dogs for the blind, we provide eye exams, we have a rabies clinic held each year , we work with Robey Elementary School to provide dictionaries for their third-graders … and there are several parties throughout the year that the Lions Club puts on for free — the Halloween party, the Christmas party, and the Easter party.”

Miller has been with the Lions Club for about five years and says he enjoys working with them.

“If you like bluegrass music, it’s a good time to listen to that and visit with local neighbors,” Miller said. “The Lions Club is about fellowship and being able to work on different projects to serve the community.”
