The Manchester Area Friends hosts an annual fish fry on Fridays during the Lenten season. A Manchester tradition, the fish fry has been a staple in the community for several years. Manchester Area Friends were fortunate enough to be able to continue this tradition beginning in 2009. With a dedicated membership and several volunteers, Manchester Area Friends is able to serve over 2,500 dinners during the Lenten season.

In 2011, Manchester Area Friends and Sharon United Methodist Church entered into a collaborative arrangement to provide the annual fish fry at their community center located at 19990 Pleasant Lake Road, Manchester, MI. The fish fry continues at this location and enjoys a great working relationship with the Sharon Methodist Church family. With plenty of parking and a short wait to be seated to eat, the fish fries have been a great success for everyone involved.

Manchester Area Friends (MAF) is not-for-profit community group that supports our youth. All proceeds from the fish fry (and all MAF events) are donated back to the community. Volunteer groups donate their time to assist in putting on the Friday night events, and are awarded with a portion of the net proceeds from the event. Volunteer groups that worked at the event include:

  • Manchester After Prom Committee
  • Manchester High School Girls Basketball
  • Manchester Soccer Association
  • Manchester Mason’s
  • The Sophomore Class
  • Manchester Community Schools Foundation

MAF strives to achieve community involvement as an effort to make the community a better place for our youth. We hope you will consider dining with us on Friday nights during the Lenten season to support Manchester youth and our community.

We look forward to seeing you at Sharon United Methodist Church on Friday nights during the Lenten Season.
