St. Frederick Baptist Church is holding a fish fry fundraiser from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. March 23. Proceeds will help purchase lumber for the Black History Museum under construction at the church, 301 Avenue N in Marble Falls. 

“The slab has been poured, but now we need to buy the lumber to frame it,” said museum organizer Bessie Jackson.

Dine in or take home a plate of fried catfish with pinto beans, coleslaw, hush puppies, and french fries for $15. Drinks are $1. Homemade desserts are also available. 

If you choose to sit down and eat in the church’s fellowship hall, you can see some of the history materials that will be in the museum.
