Rotary Lobsterfest was a big success

Rotarians, and others, gather for a group picture with the giant lobster that  was at Lobsterfest.
Thanks to Terri Williams, who designed this sign, and others, that greeted people at Lobsterfest.

Lobsterfest supporters enjoyed a fresh, whole Atlantic lobster.

Raj Singh and Leann Boehm stirred and served butter for the lobster. 

Art Beselt was among those who cooked steaks at Lobsterfest. 
Former Rotarian Vern Symons and current Rotary member Reynold Bert prepared the lobster. 
The Rotary Club of Estevan recently hosted its biggest fundraiser of the year, our annual Lobsterfest.
We served steak and lobster to more than 700 people. Not only did people support us by purchasing the lobster, but many of them placed bids on silent auction items or purchased 50/50 tickets.
This year's Lobsterfest was the biggest yet in terms of the number of tickets sold. 
A number of community groups volunteered to help make the event possible.
Proceeds from Lobsterfest will be used to support various Rotary projects in the community and around the world. We were able to make a couple cheque presentations at the start of the evening. (See the story below for more information).
Rotary would like to thank everybody for the support they showed to make Lobsterfest another huge success. We'll see you again next year.
