  Second annual all you can eat fish fry set in Mabank
By Cajun Bob Jenkins
Special to The Monitor

MABANK–Just a reminder that our second annual all you can eat fish fry for One Man’s Treasure Clothes Closet will be held Friday, Nov. 19, here at Cedar Creek Lake.
Because of the construction at St. James on the Lake, the fish fry is being held at the First United Methodist Church at Mabank.
Tickets are limited, so please purchase or reserve your tickets now.
Last year, we stopped selling tickets at 120, because that was the number we could serve at the time.
We did another all you can eat fish fry earlier this year at the Methodist Church in Rockwall, and stopped ticket sales at 180 for the same reason.
At this second annual fish fry at the lake, we are serving in two shifts, 5-6:30 p.m. and 6:30-8 p.m., and are limiting ticket sales to 150 tickets per time period.
The fish fry will be just like last year at Rockwall, with all you can eat fresh, never frozen catfish fillets seasoned with fish fry mixture and cooked in fresh peanut oil, with homemade cole slaw and tartar sauce, wonderful french fries and hushpuppies, tea and desserts.
It doesn’t get any better than this.
Annette is off this week to Beto, a maximum security prison, for a Kairos weekend, so I am charged with selling all the tickets while she is gone.
Please help me!
Think of and please invite anyone you would like to join you at the fish fry.
I promise everyone will have a wonderful time just like last year and all proceeds go to One Man’s Treasure Clothes Closet. One Man’s Treasure Clothes Closet is now providing clothes to 60 ex-offenders each month with 140 volunteers and only three part-time paid workers.
They are truly making a difference and they need your continued support.
This all you can eat fish fry is an epicurean value at only $12 per ticket for adults!
Children 8 and under are free and half price for 9-12.
You can e-mail me right now to reserve your tickets or you can call Annette or me anytime and reserve tickets to pick up at St. James this Sunday or at the fish fry.
I also deliver tickets in the greater Cedar Creek Lake area.
Call Bob at (214) 202-8539 or Annette at (214) 532-9819.
You can also purchase and pick up your tickets this Sunday at St. James Episcopal Church right after the 9 a.m. service.
Thank you for all your help and continued support.
In addition to getting to enjoy probably the best fried catfish in the entire world, you will also be giving blessings to many and we will all just let God take it from there. Amen.

 

City repeals old ordinances
Monitor Staff Reports
EUSTACE–The Eustace City Council abolished a number of unused ordinances and approved some police department raises in a brief regular session Tuesday.
The ordinances – number 3, 5, 11, 12, 37, 38 and 41 through 54 – are not in the city’s current ordinance book, which is regularly updated with ordinances recommended by the Texas Association of Counties, city secretary Sandy Lane explained.
In a related action with Ordinance 39, which requires the city to designate a Fair Housing Administrator, council members agreed to list the mayor as the administrator.
Following a closed session, council members approved a raise for police officer Jeremy Thomas (to $9/hour) and police chief Robert Walker (to $16.30/hour), and retroactively (to Oct. 1) hired police officer Troy Tucker at $10/hour.
Also, council members agreed city employees must take at least half of their accrued vacation time before Dec. 31, but also agreed to offer cash for the other half of the vacation time.
In other business, the council:
• took no action on determining a location for the city’s deeds and records.
• tabled discussion on an interlocal agreement for cooperative purchasing for new police patrol units until the December council session (Walker was not present, due to a death in the family).
• tabled discussion on requiring a vehicle job and mileage chart for city vehicles for the December meeting. Department heads will meet before then to discuss details, Lane said.

Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
