Raffle, Fish Fry Thursday, July 22

Besides frying up fish and fixin’s Thursday, July 22, in the cool and comfortable Myrtle Wilks Community Center in Cisco, the Association is stirring up a cool raffle that includes, among other things, one hundred pounds of tender, locally grown, grass-fed beef.

How would that look in your freezer?

Get the light, crispy, flaky cod starting at 5:30 Thursday, July 22, served by Ron Bostick and crew. With that enjoy hot, fresh hush puppies, french fries or potato salad, savory coleslaw, iced tea and dessert. It ends when the food and the fun run out, so arrive early.

For that classic menu we ask a donation of $10, or just $5 for children 12 and under.

Guitarist, drummer, and pianist Reuben Wilson of Cisco entertains a friend. Reuben is one of several performers appearing at the fish fry Thursday in Cisco.

With that comes an evening full of music. Performers are talented Eastland Countians including Alice Ann Holliday of Cisco; Reuben Wilson and Walker York, also of Cisco; the Corinth Baptist Church Choir; Lynn and Rosetta Hagan of Carbon; Bill Fannin from Lake Leon; Ron Bostick, who grew up at Romney but now lives at Cisco; and Ruth York of Cisco.

The Association is also raffling off valuable prizes such as one hundred pounds of tender, grass-fed beef, vacuum packed and donated by a local producer. Get your raffle tickets now and join us at the fish fry for the drawing. Tickets are $6 each or three for $15.

The Romney Cemetery Association maintains the final resting place of many Eastland County loved ones at Romney, between Cisco and Rising Star. The Association, like many Americans, has been hurt by falling interest rates. Income from its perpetual care fund is used to maintain this sacred ground.

Help us make up the shortfall. Join us July 22 for an evening of good food, fun and prizes.
