All You Can Eat Crab Feed
The date for this event changes annually, based on crab availability... but usually around the end of January or first part of February. The club serves up hundreds of pounds of crab, and provides live music for entertainment. As always, our profits are used to fund various community services, but a focus of the club is always on literacy. To that end we provide books and other materials for Head Start, support Peaceful Schools, Students of the month and Scholarships for PHS graduating Seniors.
