The Greenport and Southold Rotary Clubs still want you to celebrate their annual LobsterFest extravaganza - but for this year, in the comfort of your own home.
"Due to health restrictions caused by the Covid-19 virus, the annual seaside LobsterFest had to be tweaked," Arlene Klein noted. "The new 2020 version will only be Take-A-Way meals. When placing your order online, don't forget to choose your pickup time slot."
On Saturday, July 25, the Clubs will host The Great LobsterFest Take-Away at the Greenport High School. From 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., you can pick up a delectable dinner that includes either lobster or steak, as well as a myriad of sides.
"Just $40 gets you lobster or steak (your choice), shrimp cocktail, potato, corn on the cob, coleslaw and cookies for dessert. Kids' meals are free with every adult meal," she said. The kids' meal includes a hot dog and corn on the cob.
LobsterFest is one of the North Fork's most popular summer gatherings. "Same great food, same great community spirit, same great fun," Klein shared.
Each year the event raises money for the Greenport and Southold communities. "Rotary Clubs benefit local community service projects, non profit organizations for children and adults, as well as international foundations," she explained.
The Greenport Rotary Club's reach and organizations they champion include college scholarships totaling $7,500 to outstanding Greenport High School seniors each year, RYLA (Rotary's leadership program for high school students), Interact and EarlyAct (school service organizations), Literacy programs on the North Fork, Eastern Long Island Hospital, CAST (community assistance), East End Seaport Museum, Veterans' flags on Memorial Day, American Legion, Salvation Army, Glory Going Green (a youth science program), and more. The Southold Rotary Club is involved with local outreach holiday food distribution for those in need, local youth scholarships, Rotary youth leadership (RYLA), the robotics team, Little League, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Rotary Youth Exchange, ELIH, Camp Pa-qua-tuck, national and international disaster relief, Gift of Life, PolioPlus, and many more.
"Swing by Greenport High School to pick up your meals to enjoy with friends and family," Klein concluded.
