Cook Baptist hosts Fish Fry for vets
Cook Baptist Church held its annual Fish Fry for veterans and their spouses on Monday in observation of Memorial Day.
Richard Jones, member of Cook Baptist and primary organizer of the event, said the lunch was started with honoring the older veterans at the church.
“I had been doing a lot with some of the World War II vets of the church. We started the fish fry for those at the church, and it just evolved to include the community,” Jones said. “We just lose so much of the World War II vets every year. I really enjoy being around them.”
