The Plainfield United Methodist Church (PUMC) Community Fish Fry makes its return, after a year hiatus on Friday, July 30th and Saturday, July 31st.
The PUMC Fish Fry began in 1945 and was staged on the corner of Main and Center Streets next to the Strafford Drug Store. Food was prepared in homes and any way possible. Dishes were used and washed by hand. Fish sandwiches sold for 15 cents each. In 2004, the Fish Fry was staged under the BIG TENT on the church property at 600 Simmons Street, Plainfield, IN 46168.
Through Plainfield United Methodist Church small groups, Fish Fry proceeds benefit local, national, and global mission projects such as hunger alleviation programs in the area; youth mission trips, and international outreach; as well as support of local boy scouts.
Plainfield United Methodist Church was founded in 1836 and is one of Plainfield’s longest established churches.
