Bethesda’s Annual Fish Fry

The Bethesda United Methodist Men's Club decided to end our annual fish fry with last years 60TH anniversary.  This was not an easy decision.  We deliberated for almost 2 years with at least a dozen meetings devoted solely to the fish fry.  It was an incredible church wide event and it will be missed by many here in our community as well.  We are in the process of planning a suitable replacement.  If you have ideas please share them with a men's club member.  Thank you all for your many years of volunteer service and we look forward to the future. Steve Pealock, President of UMM
