St. Paul weekly fish fries are
happening with many changes
WEIRTON — The St. Paul Holy Name Men and Christian Mothers will once again have their fish fry every Friday during Lent and featuring Coleman fish.
But because of COVID-19 restrictions, this year will bring many changes, according to organizers.
“We will only offer fried fish dinners (fried fish, bun, french fries and coleslaw) for $10. All orders will be takeout,” a spokesperson explained.
Orders can be called in to (304) 797-1182, which is the preferred way to order. “You also can order curbside from your car in the circle in front of the school. All orders will be paid for here — cash only — and delivered to your car.”
The hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Friday during Lent.
“We need to close curbside ordering and pickup from 2:15 p.m. to 3 p.m. to allow parents to pick up their children from school,” the spokesperson emphasized. “Please plan accordingly. Phone orders can still be placed during this time for later pickup.”
There will be no deliveries available this year — pickup only.
“We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to be back to normal next year,” the spokesperson added.

Chamber: Restaurant Roulette supporting local eateries
WEIRTON — The Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce is asking area residents to take a chance while supporting their local eateries.
Restaurant Roulette is a contest, which Chamber President Brenda Mull explained is a new way to show support for area restaurants.
“When you go out to eat, save your receipts and drop them off at the chamber,” Mull said, noting residents should write their name and phone number on each receipt.
Receipts mailed to the chamber also will be accepted but not those e-mailed, faxed or photocopied. For those stopping by the chamber office — located at 3174 Pennsylvania Ave., Suite 1 — outside of business hours, or not wishing to go inside, a blue bag has been placed under the office’s mailbox.
Each week of the contest, chamber officials will draw a name, and the winner will receive a gift card to a local restaurant.
“We’ll post the winners on our Facebook page,” Mull said.
The contest runs through April.
