On Friday, May 12, The Meeting Place will hold a fish fry fundraiser for the Polk County Senior Centers. From 4 until 7 p.m. meals will be served at the Columbus center located at 75 Carmel Lane (formerly the Classical School).

The meal will include the  fried fish for which The Meeting Place kitchen is locally famous (although visitors from as far away as Florida have commented most favorably on the quality of this dish), hush puppies, cole slaw, chips, fresh, homemade strawberry shortcake and a drink. It will be available as eat-in or take-out.

James Metcalf and his Colt Creek Band will provide entertainment for the evening.  This local group has a following for their Blue Grass and Gospel sound.
