Tipton Knights of Columbus Council 1360 held its Annual Fish Fry Friday, Feb. 24, at the St. Andrew's School cafeteria. Fried fish, fried potatoes, coleslaw and potato salad were served along with drinks at the fish fry held on the first Friday of the Lenten season. Andy Turner is the Council 1360 Grand Knight and said the Lenten season is a time of spending time getting close to God.

"Lent is a very special season," Turner said, "for the Catholic faith. And having Ash Wednesday and our fish fry is a way of getting people into the swing of things and into the mood of reflecting and getting closer to Jesus."

Turner said there is a lot of work which goes into the fish fry. The council buys the menu items and serving items locally which he added is a win-win for both the community and Knights.
