Fort Wayne Community Schools and the parents of the children at Waynedale Elementary are having problems providing uniforms and equipment needed by the students.

Last February the Waynedale Lions Club sponsored a Dan’s Fish Fry to buy shoes. With the volunteer help of the Waynedale Methodist Ladies, the Post #241 Legion Auxiliary and the Waynedale Elementary P.T.A. along with their members and spouses, they were able to raise over $1800 plus a matching $750 grant from Indiana Lions Foundation.

After the successful Fish Fry and the offer from many local volunteers we learned of the need for additional equipment and uniforms.

At the June 2016 Board Meeting of the Waynedale Lions Club, it was unanimously voted to adopt Waynedale Elementary School as their major project and to have another Fish Fry along with a Bake Sale this fall helping to supply the school’s needs.

Volunteers are asked to contact Brenda Warren, Social Worker at Waynedale Elementary School, The Waynedale News or the Elder Law Office of James Springer, at 747-7224 to obtain tickets, make baked goods for the day of the Fish Fry or buy tickets. Pre-Sale tickets will be sold by various Waynedale merchants, the P.T.A. and the Waynedale Lions Club.

The Fish or Chicken Strip dinners are “all you can eat” (except for carry-out) and is provided by Dan’s Fish Fry. You will have a choice of sides between potato salad, coleslaw and applesauce. For drinks there will be coffee, lemonade or koolaid. And for dessert there will be a wide variety to choose from!

Adults Tickets: $10 Presale, $12 at the Door
Children 6 thru 12: $6.50 (5 and under eat free)

This is another opportunity for the residents of Waynedale, alumni of Waynedale Elementary and the community at large to support the education of our Youth and show Pride in the Waynedale Community.

Volunteers Needed: Breaders on the Fish Fry Day from 2 to 4pm, Servers, Set Up & Clean Up, as well as ticket sellers.
