John Stax spoke about LobsterFest


- If you are available to volunteer at LobsterFest, please e-mail Stax@snet.net for a position.  There is much to be done.

- Rotarians are needed to come up with goods and services that can be auctioned off.  Lou Federicci brought in a guitar that was rumored to be James Taylor's son's in years gone by.Perfect item!.Also good is services, like if your business has contracts with various suppliers, some of those might offer a gift. Lawn mowing, painting, gardening, haircuts, whatever.  Please contact Gary Higgins if you can contribute for the silent auction.
