Every year, CAPA assists the Apex Lions Club with their Fish Fry at the CC Jones building in Apex. This long standing event, over 40 years, has provided funding to a wide range of local needs. This year the profits will go to Josh Herald. Josh is a local 40 year old man who served our country as a US Marine and has been employed at Crown Honda for many years. He suffered a massive stroke on December 14th while on a hunting trip with his 15 year old son, JJ, that nearly took his life. He also has a 10 year old son, Ethan, and his wife Lori is a self-employed hairstylist in the area. Josh had surgery to remove part of his skull on December 15th and spent 2 1/2 weeks in a medically induced coma in Greenville, NC. Two and a half weeks later he was transported back to Wake County for rehabilitation. He has made great progress on his road to recovery, but still has a long, difficult and expensive road ahead. We hope that, like in years past, the entire town will rally for Josh and support his family by attending the Fish Fry. http://apexlions.org/wp/2019/01/29/fish-fry-2019/
