The Pigeon Community Multicultural Development Center in Waynesville will be serving up a fried fish and chicken dinner from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 19.

The center holds four of these dinner fundraisers each year to help raise money for general operating expenses, which is imperative to keep the organization afloat.

"This event is in preparation for our summer activities and events," said center director Lin Forney.

The PCMDC provides several services to the community including tutoring children, after school programs, and serves as a MANNA food bank distribution center. Their largest annual program is a 10-week children's enrichment summer camp.

Money from the fish and chicken fry will also be using raised funds to help pay for much needed repairs to the interior and exterior of the building, including a leaking roof.

Stop by the center located at 450 Pigeon Street in Waynesville for the meal, which includes fried fish or chicken, baked beans, cole slaw, potato salad, hushpuppies, a drink and dessert for $8 per plate. Fish and chicken can be sold separately for $1.50 each. Diners can eat in the cafeteria or carry out. Calling ahead is encouraged for large orders. Call 828-452-7232.
