Courtyard Estates of Bushnell
Courtyard Estates of Bushnell recently hosted their second “Fish Fry”. The event offered dine-in, as well as carry-out, and FREE delivery service. The meal included fried catfish, homemade potato salad, baked beans, roll/butter & drink- all for only $6.00. The fry was held to honor all the quick response and awesome service from the Bushnell Fire & Rescue Squad. Courtyard provided a free dinner to each of the volunteers from the Bushnell Response team, to thank them for their service to our community. The proceeds from the “Fish Fry” were divided equally between the Bushnell Fire & Rescue Squad and the Bushnell Recreation & Cultural Center. We were happy to raise almost $450.00 for each group.
Our staff presented Chief Brent Glisan and Jeff Rench with their check this past week. The check presentation to the Recreation Center will be held at a later date. We appreciate and would like to thank the community for their support of our many events.
