Lobsterfest was a huge success

The Rotary Club of Estevan's Lobsterfest was once again a huge success, as we managed to raise tens of thousands of dollars for our projects locally and internationally.

Lobsterfest was held on Friday, June 10 at the brand new Spectra Place events centre in Estevan. It was the first time that we have been able to use Spectra Place for Lobsterfest; previous editions were held in the Civic Auditorium.

Nearly 700 people were served a fresh, whole Atlantic lobster that was shipped to Estevan earlier in the day. Steak, baked potatoes, buns and salads were served with the lobster. And, of course, supporters could enjoy a beverage at our Atlantic spirits bar.

There was also a silent auction, which helped to raise thousands of dollars for the club.

Rotary would like to thank everybody who attended Lobsterfest this year, and helped to make it the best ever. We'd also like to thank all of the volunteers who allow this event to be the success that it is on an annual basis. We look forward to seeing you at Lobsterfest 2012.
