Bell says, this event is reminiscent of what black folk used to do back in the old days.
"It's just so relaxing."
Releford says, the fish fry was to raise money for the Douglass Alumni Scholarship Fund, which has been without a major money source since the annual Alumni Golf Tournament stopped.
That fact did not go unnoticed by Mrs. Bell, who was pleased when she found out where the money for the fundraiser was going.
Will there be another Douglass Fish Fry fundraiser?
Meanwhile at this one, folks keep stopping by the Douglass ballfield shelter, and the orders keep coming. Andrew Watterson is dropping fish into the fryers right and left. "Andrew can really fix some good fish," says Mrs. Bell. "Really, he can cook anything well."
280 pieces of fish.. every sandwich had two pieces..
That amounts to 140 fish sandwiches. Each and every one of them cooked by Andrew was sold, to folks who waited on them by chatting with friends, and enjoying each other's company.
