On April 15, St. Bernadette Church came together to enjoy their annual fish fry.
The atmosphere inside St. Bernadette Catholic Academy was alive as attendees shared drinks and laughs at this year’s annual fish fry. The fry, which is put on every year by St. Bernadette’s Men’s Club, is far more about relationship building than fundraising. "We like to call this event a 'fun' raiser rather than a fundraiser," said Men’s Club vice president Dan McKeown "because it’s not about the money.

Viewfinder is our weekly photo gallery that runs every Thursday.
