The Princeton VFW Post 5595 is holding a Fish Fry on Saturday, Aug. 30 from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Larry Smith, Quartermaster and board member of the VFW, said the money from this event will go towards veterans.

"We have a veterans van that's able to transport our local and county veterans to and from their medical appointments at the V.A facilities, whether it be in Marion, Illinois, Nashville, Tennessee, Evansville, Indiana or local clinics in Hopkinsville and Paducah," Smith said.

A lot of their money is geared towards supporting the veterans van.

"There are other things that go unknown to the general public because we have veterans that are passing through that have money issues," Smith said. "We're always there and all they have to do is call us and if we can we'll give them money for a nights lodging, feed them and get them on their way."

He said they hold these fish fries at least once or twice a year.

"We would like the community to be more involved," Smith said. "I think a lot of the time that they don't think perhaps that they are welcome to participate in it but it is open to the public."

Community members can call ahead and they'll have orders ready upon arrival. There is a small alley beside the VFW that they are using as a drive-thru.

"You can just call ahead of time, drive up and we'll be cooking right there and have it ready right there for you to take and be on your way," Smith said.

The menu is two fish fillets, white beans, coleslaw and Happy Jacks famous hush puppies.

"It's just a time of fellowship for everybody to get together," Smith said. "We welcome the community with open arms to come up there and be a part of that. In their own little way, buying a plate does help a veteran."

He said the VFW's sole purpose to the help its fellow veterans. The fish fry is located at the VFW, at 121 E Main Street.
