Lions First Fish Fry

The Victoria Lions held their first ever Community Fish Fry on Friday evening, March 11th, at the St. Victoria Catholic Church, their regular place of gathering since last summer.  Lions agreed, “It was a lot of work.”  Visitors agreed, “It was very good.”  The crowd was congenial and well fed.

The Chaska Chanhassen Bantam B2 Hockey Team participated in the 2016 Victoria Lions Fish Fry and were helping out everywhere as needed.  The boys volunteered by bussing tables, refilling beverages, washing  dishes, cleaning up after the event, and putting chairs and tables away.  The team is coached by Clayton Solie, Mike Ramler, and Donald Armstrong.
