Citizens for a Caledonia School District, a group pushing for the formation of an independent Caledonia school, is hosting a fish fry and raffle at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at the Roundabout Bar & Grill, 5844 Douglas Ave.

The money will be used to pay for signs, literature drops, and advertising for the effort, according to a press release by the group.

The Caledonia village board gave its blessing on a referendum question on whether village residents want to pursue forming its own independent school district, a question that will be on the April 7 ballot.

The decision was met with applause by about 30 residents in the audience after the unanimous vote was taken at a special board meeting that took minutes to complete on Jan. 26. The purpose of the advisory referendum will allow the village board and state Legislators to gauge the public’s interest in forming the district so that they can decide on whether to move forward with a feasibility study.

Participants will have the  opportunity to win overnight hotel stays, personal care packages, outdoor fireplaces and an HD television in a silent auction to the highest bidder.

The cost of the fish fry and raffle is $25. Additional entries for the raffle are $20 per person. Children under 15 can eat for $5, and will be served boneless wings and other side items.

The public is welcome, including non-residents who want to support the cause, organizers said.
