Pitcairn Fire Company No. 2 keeps fish fry going each week
The members of Pitcarin Fire Company No. 2 are holding their Five-Alarm Fish Fry every Friday during Lent.
And they're serving more than fish. Dinner choices are a fish sandwich, shrimp in a basket or chicken strips for $8. There also is a 10-piece pierogi dinner for $7.50.
All dinners include two sides. Sides include fries, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and haluski. Individual sides are sold for $3 each.
For lighter appetites, a la carte items are available. Choices are a fish sandwich or shrimp for $6 each, five pierogies for $4.50, and cheese sticks and macaroni-and-cheese bites for $4 each.
A $5.50 child's meal includes three chicken strips and a side.
The kitchen opens at 4 p.m., and orders can be placed by calling 412-856-5630. Call-ahead orders are for takeout only. They can be picked up at the firehouse at 720 Brinton Ave. Free delivery is available in Pitcairn.
The Pitcairn Woman's Club's annual “Saturday Nite at the Auction” fundraiser will be held March 23 in the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard.
The event will include a buffet dinner, wine, beer and a live-bidding auction.
Those attending will have the opportunity to bid on a number of new items, including theater tickets, sports memorabilia, restaurant certificates and more.
The donation is $10. To buy advance tickets, call 412-856-7294 or 412-651-5933.
Proceeds will benefit the club's 2012-13 budget, which includes donations to the Girl Scouts, Meals on Wheels, the Pitcairn Food Pantry, scholarships, Mohawk Football, the Pitcairn Baseball/Softball Association and Propel Pitcairn.
