It’s that time of the year again! Wallingford Rotary will be holding its annual silent auction and lobster fest. Tickets to the Lobster Fest are $30 for either lobster or steak dinner with all the trimmings, beverages and dessert.

The Lobster Festival and Silent Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and will be held this year, as always at the Wallingford Lodge at Elfin Lake in Wallingford, Vermont on September 8, 2019. The event attracts approximately 150 community members who enjoy a lobster dinner with all the trimmings on the shore of beautiful Elfin Lake. We have a silent auction during the event to raise additional funds for our community causes as listed below.

The proceeds from this event locally to support our community projects for children this year will be split will be used in our communities to support the Wallingford Rotary’s work with area children including high school scholarships, our annual Wallingford Bike Safety Day where each child who comes is given a free new bicycle helmet fitted just for them, Project Dictionary where each third grade student in our communities’ schools of Danby, Wallingford, Tinmouth, Shrewsbury and Clarendon is given a new dictionary/thesaurus to keep as their own, our annual Fishing Clinic and derby and Youth Exchange with international rotary clubs providing local students an opportunity to experience a year living abroad with a host family.

We hope that you will help support our small but mighty club by attending the dinner and/or bidding at our silent auction. Please check back here for auction items as we receive them from our generous donors.
