Letter: Inviting the Community to Support the Rotary Club Lobsterfest


Consider yourself personally invited to support the 32nd Annual Rotary Club Lobsterfest to be held Friday, Sept. 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 23 from 12 to 8 p.m.

Proceeds benefit local and international organizations supported through the Rotary Club of New Canaan’s annual grant awards.

Organizations supported in the past include the New Canaan Library, Meals on Wheels, the Getabout Van, New Canaan YMCA, Person to Person, Domus, Future5, Camp Horizons, ABC of New Canaan, Americares Free Clinics, Carriage Barn Arts Center, Kids in Crisis, and many others. In addition, the Rotary Club of New Canaan supports International efforts of Rotary International to eradicate Polio and other humanitarian efforts, including HALO, an organization committed to clearing land mines around the world.

If you’ve been to Lobsterfest before, you know what a great tradition this event is, and if you haven’t attended before, I encourage you to make plans to support this fun family event. Held on the grounds of the New Canaan Historical Society, the Lobsterfest offers dining on site or meals prepared for take-out.

For a $35 ticket purchased in advance ($40 at the door), you support a great cause and get a complete freshly cooked lobster dinner with locally grown corn-on-the-cob, cole slaw, drawn butter and desert. Tickets are available from any Rotary Club member, by calling Karl Chevrolet at 203-966-9508 and asking for Leo or Lynda, or online at newcanaanrotery.org. Thank you in advance for your support.

Leo Karl III, member, Rotary Club of New Canaan
