Macoupin County residents will have the opportunity to get their fried fish fix once more in the upcoming weeks. Both the Dorchester Homecoming and the Hettick Fish Fry were held over the past weekend. The community fish fries that are traditionally held in August are events designed to raise money for the community and as a way to bring the community together. Chesterfield will have their annual Fish Fry in just over a week.
Hettick Fish Fry
The Hettick Fish Fry was held at the Hettick Community Club on Saturday, Aug. 6, serving up fried fish as well as fried chicken. Food was served between 11 a.m. -1 p.m. and from 4-6 p.m.
The Hettick Fish Fry is sponsored every year by the Hettick Community Club and the Hettick volunteer Fire Department.
The Bill Sonneborn memorial Truck and Car show is hosted the same day with various types of vehicles lining the street for the fish fry attendees to enjoy.
