I love a good fish fry! I also enjoy the Mayberry sort of feeling of a community supper. I’m finding it rather difficult to find info on these the last few years. You used to see signs in front of churches and flyers all over town. Busy churches would hire police to direct traffic in and out of their location. Now there is no sign of them.
As I was searching online for my area (Triangle area, NC) I noticed many Knights of Columbus groups have cut back to just 1 - 3 dates during Lent. It was hard to even find mention of the dinners on many of the church websites. The KOC websites were even worse - many haven’t been updated in years.
Which made me wonder…Has this facet of Lent (no meat Fridays) become less observed? Are there simply not enough volunteers to put these events on? Are community suppers no longer of interest?
So I’m curious if it just my part of the country or if this is happening elsewhere. What have you observed? (Please note your geographic area!)
