    Editor:

    What a bargain. If you missed the meal of a fish sandwich, cole slaw, mac and cheese, fries, hush puppies and drink Saturday, June 27 at the Worthville Fire Department, you missed a mouth watering experience.

    Those that were in charge know how to prepare a meal, only $6.

    Thanks Worthville Fire Department — your service to the community is appreciated.
