Another weekend is upon us. COVID-19 infection rates are still low, but have ticked up from their all-time low last week. The CDC is no longer recommending masks, as long as a county has low hospitalization rates. For those who want to venture out, we've put together a list of five things you could do this weekend right here in Hardin County. Stay healthy, and have a great weekend.
Pick up a fish dinner
The Knights of Columbus will host a Lenten fish fry on Friday, April 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. at St. Mark Catholic Church in Iowa Falls (415 Main St.). The menu will include fish, baked potato, baked beans, coleslaw, dessert bar and water or coffee. The cost is $12 per meal. It is available dine-in or carry-out.
