St. Boniface fish fry keeps growing

Bill Verbryke of Elmore enjoying a meal at a recent fish fry.

St.Boniface Catholic Parish found that its famous all-you-can-eat fish fry had become so popular it had outgrown the undercroft beneath the church. Its new venue in the school gymnasium reflects how the event has grown and changed over the years.

The fish fry started in 2005 as a necessary fund raiser to help St. Boniface School meet expenses. Each Friday during Lent they served about 250 dinners of fish with a side of cole slaw. As the menu expanded their reputation spread and the crowds of customers grew. The undercroft was just too small to comfortably accommodate the serving of 500 meals a night.

Local author at St. Boniface Fish Fry

How often can you get a great, all-you-can-eat fish dinner and at the same time the chance to hear first-person stories of driving a tank in WWII?

On April 4 the St. Boniface Fish Fry welcomes Casimir “Ki” Jadwisiak for a book signing of his newly published book, “An Immigrant Family History”.

Ki Jadwisiak, a lifelong area resident, recounts in over 50 emails to his relatives and friends experiences and adventures of his 87 years. 

It all began at the family dinner table, where he told and retold tales of his youth to his children. Following these stories his children would often say, “Gee, Dad, I wish you’d write that down”. Ki started with what he thought would be about half a dozen email letters. He was amazed at how, when writing about a past incident, minute details of his past would come to mind.

The letters began with his parents in Poland. They take the reader through the trials and tribulations of life on a Port Clinton farm during the Great Depression and his experiences as a tank driver with the Marines in North China during WWII. The book recounts conversations with former bootleggers, brushes with big-time gangsters in LA, two personal audiences with Pope John Paul II and many other stories of his travels to 28 countries. The book contains 130 photos that accompany the story.

Ki will be available to talk and sign books from 4 through 7 p.m. at St. Boniface, 215 Oak St., Oak Harbor. A portion of all sales will be donated to St. Boniface Catholic School.
