St. Paul's 37th Annual Fish Fry and Oyster Roast
(Federal Point, Florida, USA)
April 16, 2016 Noon til 4pm Rain or Shine we Dine!
St. Paul's Episcopal Church at Federal Point, Florida sits along the bank of the majestic St. Johns River on the north end of Putnam County. Built in 1882, this historic Gothic Carpenter Church has served visitors and residents of Federal Point for over 130 years.
Around 1890 the stained glass windows were added to the church. These window were purchased in part by money that the ladies of the church raised by selling painted alligator eggs to tourist traveling via steamships and stopping at the wharf at Federal Point. The 130 year old bell that calls people to worship today still sounds as lovely as when it as new. The bell was made in the Meneely Bell Foundary in Troy, New York.
For the last 37 years we've been hosting and fish fry and oyster roast to raise money for our youth group and mission work. Each year people come from far and wide to sit under the shade of the old oak trees and enjoy their meal while listening to gospel music. In recent years there is also a display of classic cars and arts and crafts vendors.
The dinners are all you can eat and include: fries make fresh from potatoes and slaw made fresh from cabbages out of the fields in Hastings, hush puppies, Minorcan Clam Chowder, desserts and tea.
I've included a picture of the church today and a picture taken at last year's event.
