The local council of the Knights of Columbus has been active in helping the community in many ways. They are one of the charter sponsors of the Mesquite Little League and of the Virgin Valley Elementary School Summer Reading Program. They also support other local charities like the Mesquite Chapter of the Special Olympics, and the local chapter of the Salvation Army. The Knights are affiliated with La Virgen de Guadalupe Catholic Church. Many of their service activities are done in conjunction with the church.
The Knights are an active organization that is supported through various fund raising activities. The annual Fish Fries are one of the Knights biggest events. This year will mark the eight year that the Knights have put on the fish fry dinners.
The dinner will be held in a new location this year, the Elks Lodge on Riverside. This venue allows us to serve over 250 delicious dinners in a timely manner and in a comfortable setting.
There are three Friday fish fry dinners scheduled this year: Feb. 16 and March 2 and 16. Dinner will be served from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Take-out dinners are also available. The dinner includes a choice of fried cat fish or cod, hush puppies, French fries, a beverage and our famous home-made coleslaw and homemade desserts. The Fish Fries are open to the public.
Tickets may be purchased at the door for a donation of $12 for adults ($10 for tickets bought in advance) and $5 for children (12 and under). There also is a special promotion for families, The Family Meal Deal: Parents and all their school-age children (grades K–12) can have dinner for one low price of $25.
Tickets will be available from members of the Knights of Columbus or at the door on the days of the dinners. Come and enjoy a wonderful meal. Please call or Joel Sodano (702) 613-4314 or Bob Leroux (702) 613-4324 with any questions.
