API fish fry scheduled March 29

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward's local American Petroleum Institute (API) Chapter will be holding its annual fish fry on March 29 at the county fairgrounds.

Woodward API Fish Fry Chairman R. Jake Bogner said the fish fry has been an annual fundraiser for the club for over 3 decades. Bogner said the money from the event will go towards providing scholarships to 4 area students.

"In addition to that we currently we have 11 youths that are on some type of scholastic assistance through API," Bogner said.

The scholarships provided by API provide students seeking secondary scholastic or vocational education with $1,000 a year for 4 years.

Bogner said the dinner will start around 4:30 p.m. and feature fried cod as well as trimmings such as hush puppies and beans.

Dinner won't be the only event of the evening, as the API Fish Fry will also feature live music performed by the band Crossfire starting at 9 p.m.

Woodward Chapter API President and Crossfire's drummer Skeeter Cosner said his band plays everything from 50s and 60s rock to country and even some newer songs.

Cosner explained that Crossfire was a very hot band back in the 80s, and once took third place in the state at the Marlboro Talent Round Up.  However, he said the band eventually broke up, and now will be reuniting after 27 years to perform at the Fish Fry, so those in attendance will be in for an impressive show.

Bogner and Cosner encourage people to come out, enjoy good food, good music, and support both a local event that in turn supports students from around Northwest Oklahoma.
