Despite the frigid temperatures that dipped into negative degrees, the St. Jude Knights of Columbus managed to fry up a slew of catfish, cod, hushpuppies and fries at their Lenten fish fry Feb. 20.

"There was some serious doubt if people would come with it being so cold," said project manager Roman Marciniak. The Knights and volunteers soldiered on with the help of a tent and a 59,000 BTU construction heater. The fact that 241 meals were served by the end of the night proved their efforts had not been in vain.

Half of the night's proceeds are ear-marked for the St. Jude's building fund, with the other half going to the Knights of Columbus. The Knights will host another fish fry March 27.
