The Ellis Grove Fire Department held a special fish fry April 26 to raise money for the LKOC Relay For Life team, and presented the group with a check for $2,600.

Relay For Life is a fundraising arm of the American Cancer Society.

According to Ellis Grove Fire Chief Michael Jackson, the Relay For Life ladies and their husbands have helped the fire department with other fish frys, helping firemen serve the food, preparing the food and cleaning up.
