MEEKER I A few years ago, the White River Community Association was awarded a grant to restore the rural Buford School, which is located upriver just south of the historic community of Buford.
Restoration took place and the association has since maintained the property through funds raised during the annual fish fry on the second Saturday in June.
In the spring, there is the Buy-Fly Fishing Tournament, in which the fish are caught to supply the event.
Participation in that occasion is a tradition in itself. But people from miles around look forward to June when they can come together to take part in the festivity of eating the catch.
This year, the fish fry will take place Saturday, with the members of the association serving the delicious white fish with all the trimmings at the legendary Buford Schoolhouse on County Road 17. The donation price is $10 for adults.
Proceeds from the event will be used for continued improvement and maintenance at the rural school.
