Shelbyville Youth Sports fish fry a huge success

Event hosted at Raymond Motor Company in Center

A benefit fish fry sponsored by Shelbyville Youth Sports as a fundraiser held at Center's Raymond Motor Company on Friday was a huge success, according to organizers.

They said they sold out with pre-ordered meals on the initial 325 orders they planned to serve and had to buy more fish and fixings to help meet demand and estimated about 400 meals were served.

While the temperatures were on the chilly side, volunteers were busy huddled over portable fish fryers under the covered vehicle display area at Raymond Motors which was donated to the group for the day to provide a central covered location for the event.

For an $8 per plate donation diners got fried catfish, fries, hushpuppies and a bottle of water.
