Welcome to Fish Fry!

The Saint James Fish Fry began in 2010 and has been going and growing ever since. Snow, ice, and even a continued pandemic can’t stop the Fry. We are a volunteer run, community fish fry. The donations we receive for the meals help fund the costs of the fry, meals to those who need assistance, and our social outreach programs which serve hundreds in our area.

We hope you can join us!
