The Palatine American Legion Post 690, Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion are holding a series of fish frys during Lent.

The fish frys, which are open to the public, will be from 5:45 to 8 p.m. Fridays. Fish frys will be Feb. 21 and 28; as well as March 6, 13, 20 and 27 and April 3 and 10.


The fish frys are served upstairs in the banquet hall at the post, 122 W. Palatine Road, Palatine.

According to Erica Bartnicki, project chair, the post will be serving crunchy, battered cod dinners for $12 for adults, $5 for children younger than 10, and free for kids younger than 3.

Bartnicki said dinners include a garden salad, fish, Tater Tots, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw, rolls, coffee and dessert. Children ages 3 to 10 can request cheese pizza in place of a fish dinner.

A full-service bar is available for drinks in the banquet hall and downstairs in the Legion's clubroom.

Proceeds benefit Legion Family Charities.

"We are always looking for new members for the American Legion," said Bartnicki. "If you are interested in supporting those individuals who have defended our country, then the Legion is the organization for you.
