For many years, I’ve gone to the annual Swansboro Rotary Club’s Oyster Roast and Pig Out, and as I opened my freshly steamed oysters, I admired the amazing group of workers who were behind the scenes steaming the oysters in giant metal bins. To feed hundreds of eaters a continuous supply of steaming hot oysters takes a lot of hard-working volunteers and organization. I wanted to share this bit of local tradition with you through a slide show (below), and invite you to join us for this year’s fund raising oyster roast on March 20th, 2010 from 5-8pm. Barbeque, fried fish, hush puppies, slaw, and beer are also served..as much as you can eat, and it usually falls on the same day as the Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Day Festival. Let me know if you need tickets…my husband is a member of the Rotary Club. They sell out every year.
