35th ANNUAL BLUE CRAB FESTIVAL
This year's festival had the best two day weather we can remember and probably the largest crowds ever. Our club sold a good number of brooms, but not being able to sell water and soda really reduced our income for upcoming community projects. Sunday was busier than prior years which boosted our broom sales. Thanks to all our members who came out to do their shifts. Most time worked were three members, Lions Nick Lopano, Tom Starnick, Randy Gorby and Ben Burroughs.
Lions John Barnhardt & Randy Gorby start the erection of our big sign.
The sign is up as members await the 9 AM opening of thr festival.
Visitors begin to arrive.
