The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana will hold the 30th Annual UAHT Community Fish and Chicken Fry on Thursday, April 13, from 4:30-7:00 p.m. on the Hempstead Hall lawn at the Hope campus. The cost will be $15.00 per plate in the drive-thru, and donations will be accepted for in-person attendance. All proceeds will benefit the UAHT Foundation.

The drive-thru “to go” line for carry-out meals will be located by the Rapert Library entrance, accessed through the main campus entrance by the electronic sign. Carry-out trays will not include a drink. Tickets are available at the front desk on the Hope campus or can be purchased on the day of the event. In-person attendees will have the opportunity to give a donation at the beginning of the serving line on the Hempstead Hall lawn.

As always, the fish and chicken fry will feature delicious fried catfish and Tyson chicken cooked by the Hope Lions Club. Live music and activities for kids will also add to the community’s enjoyment.

“This year marks 30 years of our community generously supporting the college by providing funding and scholarships for students who may not otherwise be able to afford a college education,” said Anna Powell, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “Please join us again this year to enjoy food, fun, and fellowship as we support creating a better future for our students and community.”
