Crab Feed Coming up Fast - March 23, 2019

Our council is again hosting a second crab feed this March. It is our greatest  fundraiser. The menu again includes Tri-tip, crab, shrimp, pasta, clam chowder, salad and garlic bread. PGK Al Garcia has agreed to chair the event and Br. Steve Ruch will run the kitchen. Please contact these gentlemen to offer your support. Br. Scott McCabe will also need help for set-up on Saturday prior to the event. All knights should plan to help sell dinner tickets and TV raffle tickets after their masses in the weeks leading up to the dinner. If nothing else, buy dinner tickets and enjoy the event. A full bar will be available. Tickets are $50. (updated 2/4/19)

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)
