John Fry Fish Fry
Aug 25 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Ballard Elks Lodge invites you to a night of fun and revelry while we fry the Fry himself with fried fish, friends and fun! No really – help us raise funds for our incoming Washington State Elks President John Fry (from the nearby Shorline lodge #1800) while enjoying some great fried fish, raffle drawings, and the Fry of John Fry (a little fun roasting our incoming state president for his past follies and future fun).

But seriously, the time commitment and costs of being our state president are substantial and anything we can do to help our fellow Elk from our nearby Elks Lodge will be greatly appreciated. Come meet our incoming State President, have a little fun at his cost and then give a little back to the system that gives us so much comradery, pride, community involvement and great times.

Date: August 25th
Time: 5:pm to 9:pm
Cost: $20

Tickets will be available from the Lodge for pre-sale
