It's tough work grinding 300 pounds of cabbage into cole slaw, but that is what it takes to get ready for tonight's Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department's Annual Jonah Fish Fry at the Carbon Fire House. After using the cafeteria equipment at the Van Buren Elementary School on Wednesday evening, fireman Mike Short, Chief Pete Taylor and Board Member Fred Metz cleaned the grinder.
Dinner is $7, with carry-out available. Serving begins at 4 p.m. The raffle winners will be announced at 8 p.m. and a fireworks display winds down the night's activities at 8:30 p.m. The event is the largest fundraiser during the year for the fire department.
