2 year old MaKia Noland came to get some fish and cake with her mom, Ameki.

The Order of the Eastern Star Queen Ester’s Court #405 Heroines of Jericho held their annual Fish Fry Fundraiser last week. The fish fry is the primary event they do to raise funds for their various works.  According to member, Scherrel Sturdivant, “We give food boxes to the elderly at Christmas.  We give away school supplies, we were making donations to the Boys and Girls Club, but now we make a donation once a year to the Sandfield Community Children’s Christmas Fund.”  A steady stream of customers dropped by at their spot on 23rd Street South to buy a choice of pan-fried trout or catfish and homemade desserts.
