Fish fries continue around the county
LAPEER COUNTY — A number of fish fry dinners are taking place around the county every Friday night throughout the Lent season. Each offers a delicious meal of fresh fish, fried or baked, with all the trimmings. The annual tradition is a treat for Lapeer County residents, and whether or not you already have a favorite fish fry, it may be a good idea to try each of them over the next few weeks.
Locations of the Fish Fry dinners include Bishop Kelley Catholic School in Lapeer, the Lapeer Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4139 in Mayfield Township and the Knights of Columbus Hall in Imlay City.
Ace of Hearts each Monday at Louie’s Sports Tavern
LAPEER — The Lapeer Elks’ progressive jackpot game, the Ace of Hearts, is still going on every Monday night at Louie’s Sports Tavern in Lapeer — and the jackpot just keeps growing.
Tickets for the game are on sale through the Elks club and at Louie’s Sports Tavern until 8 p.m. Monday night. The game gives local residents a chance to win a growing jackpot while simultaneously helping the local community by raising funds for the Lapeer Elks.
The jackpot this Monday will be around $5,000, according to the Elks.
The Ace of Hearts is held every Monday night at Louie’s, located on Davison Road with the Polar Palace. At 8:30 p.m. every Monday the Elks draw one ticket out of a bowl and that ticket holder has the chance to pick from one playing card in a deck of cards. Whoever finds the Ace of Hearts card immediately wins the jackpot, which grows each week along with ticket sales.
Tickets cost $1 each and are available at Louie’s and the Lapeer Elks Lodge on East Nepessing St. in downtown Lapeer. Ticket sales end each week at 8 p.m. sharp. Cash prizes are also available for finding other special cards.
For more information about the Lapeer Elks’ Ace of Hearts game, call the Elks Lodge at 810- 664-3216 or Louie’s Sports Tavern at 810- 667-1500.
