EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A local church group served up chicken dinner Sunday, finding a way to keep its fundraising tradition alive despite the pandemic.
The Saint Olaf Men’s Club hosted a drive-thru chicken dinner Sunday afternoon.
For 10 dollars, drivers could get a chicken meal with a potato, a desert and more.
Proceeds support the club’s work.
The chicken dinner comes after a season of drive-up fish fry events.
Jay Bouley of Saint Olaf’s Men’s Club said, “What a relief to be able to have some degree of normalcy. That’s kind of what we did when we made sure that we kept the fish frys working through the past season from November onward. That everybody loves fish in Wisconsin and on Fridays, so we wanted to keep that going. The abnormal part was not being able to sit down at a table with your neighbor.”
The group had capacity to serve up to about 500 meals today.
In total, they served more than 53-hundred meals at their 10 fish fry events.
