After a two-year break, a little foretaste of Door County returns to Menomonee Falls.

The local Knight of Columbus Chapter is planning four fish cookers this summer.

Knights of Columbus member Michael Vosen said the group’s fish cookers will be similar to those in Door County, with one exception: instead of using just one saucepan for a meal, the Knights will use four.

One will be for the white fish, said Vosen, the other for green beans, potatoes and onions. Vosen said they want to serve sweetcorn as a side dish.

“Some people don’t like it when the onion is mixed with the fish,” said Vosen.

After a two-year hiatus – last year because of COVID-19 and the year before because of limited parking spaces – the fish cookers are scheduled for four Wednesdays this summer.

They are scheduled for June 23, July 21, August 18 and September 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., all at the Knights of Columbus Clubhouse, W164 N9161 Water St. The doors will open at 4 p.m., according to the group’s Facebook page open. The cost is $ 11 for adults; USD 10 for people 65 years of age and older and USD 6 and children 12 and under.

Vosen said a portion of the proceeds will be used to run the clubhouse and for charitable causes.

according to to the organization’s website, the Knights of Columbus were formed to provide financial aid to members and their families when they were sick, disabled, or in need. The goal of the organization, according to its Facebook page, is also to be of service to the community.

The charities for this organization include Hartfel House, an assisted living facility in Menomonee Falls; Special Olympics of Wisconsin and Operation Final Home, providing a new home to wounded, sick, or injured veterans and their families.
