Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church - Hot Springs Village, AR
The Mens Club held their Annual Fish Bake on Friday, March 22, 2013 in the Lower Hall of the Church.  Over 400 patrons were served at the 5:00 & 6:30 PM  seatings.  Chef Rick Hiemenz and his staff of cooks prepared the meal of baked Tilapia, tater tots, green beans, and rye bread that was served by members of the Mens Club.  Coffee and water were part of the meal for which ticket prices were $10 per person, and additional beverages were available from the Refreshment Center staffed by Mens Club Members headed by Lanny Mabus.  Matre'd's Bob Kindelsperger, Buddy Dixon, and Fr. Bill Elser, aided by the waiters were able to seat and serve the patrons in a very timely manner. 

After the main course, students from the Sacred Heart CCD program sold ice cream prepared by Fr. Bill Elser.  The CCD students were aided by the St. Jude Guild of the Ladies of the Sacred Heart and over 15 gallons were consumed by the patrons with the money collected going to support the CCD program. 

Over 60 members of the Mens Club participated as cooks, Matre'd's, waiters, Refreshment Center staff, kitchen coordinators, ticket sellers, take out coordinator, set up and clean up helpers.  Over $2800 was earned for our charities making this one of the more successful events for the Club. 

Thanks to the workers and to the patrons that attended.
