Bill Voliva, commander of Scuppernong Post 182 of The American Legion, is heading up a crew of Legionnaires committed to making the Southern Fish Fry on August 31 a success.

Servers and cleanup crew members are: Willis, Voliva, Braunagel, David Kitts, Leroy Spivey and George Haislip.
Advance tickets are available from any member of Post 182 or they may be purchased at the door.
Those who attend may eat in or take out plates between 4 and 7 p.m. The meals, priced at $8, will consist of fried fish, stewed potatoes, cole slaw, hushpuppies and tea, coffee, soft drink or water.
Tables and chairs will be set up in the air conditioned Post building and in the soundside pavilion for those who desire to eat on site.
The pier, jutting into Albemarle Sound east of Mill Point at the mouth of Scuppernong River, is available for boat mooring and swimming.
Scuppernong Post 182 will also sponsor a 50/50 cash raffle.
