Chili-Smelt Fry Fun Night was a success

The Caledonia Community Celebratations Annual Chili-Smelt Fry Fun Night was a success once again this year with between 250 and 300 persons served Friday evening at St. Mary’s Catholic School. All of the money raised during the event will help pay for the summer and winter community celebrations.
