January Crab Feed was a Terrific Success
Our council's first crab feed for 2019 was a rousing success as we nearly sold out our dinner tickets and many people walked away with huge smiles. The menu included crab, shrimp, pasta, clam chowder, salad and garlic bread. PGK Al Garcia chaired the event, Br. Kevin Cronan chaired the kitchen, WGK Sam Cole ran the raffle, and PGK Adin Selby ran the bar. Please thank these gentlemen for their leadership. Many other knights and wives aided significantly in this event, including Br. Scott McCabe who chaired the set-up on Saturday, with the help of Paula Selby and Beth Thayer, among others. Now, lets make plans for the next crab feed in March. (updated 2/4/19)
