Interfaith Compassion Ministry Director Lena Wiley wasn’t sure how much money was brought in from Tuesday’s fish fry fundraiser as of this morning, but one thing she did know for certain — people ate a lot of fish.
“We ran out of fish,” she said this morning. “I think it went really well. I hope it went well.”
The fish fry, held at First Baptist Church’s Family life center, served cat fish and chicken tenders for $10 a plate from 11 to 1 p.m. and then again from 4 to 7 p.m. All the proceeds will go toward ICM, particularly to help pay an outstanding $10,500 hotel bill that ICM owes to the Ole Miss Motel, which works with ICM all year to help house homeless and displaced persons temporarily.

It’s been five years since Janis Parker lost her husband, John Robert Parker Sr., after his eight-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease and a massive stroke.
Despite her loss, Janis is comforted knowing his death has helped others live.
On Saturday, friends and family will meet at Friends Park in Tula, a place Parker enjoyed visiting when he was alive. (June 3, 2010, Page 2)
