Lobster Fest and Silent Auction!

It’s that time of the year! The Wallingford Rotary’s Annual Lobster Fest is upon us. This year we will also have a silent auction and live music! Tickets are now available from any Wallingford Rotarian or you can call Tammy at 802-259-3711. The price of $30 includes your choice of lobster or steak, all the trimmings, non-alcoholic beverages and dessert. Our community’s consistent support of this, our largest fundraiser of the year is wonderful and very much appreciated by our club and the children that we support! In addition to our support of our MRUHS scholarships, Bike Safety Day, Fishing Clinic and Derby, Project Dictionary and Youth Exchange, this year we are also supporting our new global work with Haddassah Girl Empowerment Project in Uganda, a wonderful organization that is working to help girls and women become self-supporting, learn a skill and be free from abusive relationships. Our new Rotary member Kevin Mullin is a key participant in the project and would be happy to fill you in on the wonderful work they are doing. Lobster Bake2018

Lobster Fest 2015

Thanks to all those who came and participated in the Wallingford Rotary’s Lobster Fest 2015. The club was able to meet its budget with regard to this fundraising event which helps support its scholarship program.

Special thanks to the Mill River Union High School Key Club members who gave up their Sunday to come and help us set up and serve! We could not have done it without your help!

Here are some pictures of the event. If you missed this year’s event, our next Lobster Fest will be held on Sunday August 21, 2016!
