FRANKFORT -- Hundreds of people came out to a local fish fry to kick off the first Friday of lent.
The event happened at 'Our Lady Queen of Apostle' church in Frankfort.
People were there enjoying food and gift raffles.
Cub scouts came out to sell baked goods.
Gina Janis, the event organizer, says this is her tenth annual fish fry fundraiser.
"It's a good way for the community to come together," Janis said. "So many local restaurants have been so generous and donated so much of our supplies and items for raffle. We really like to give back to the community whenever we can."
