The weather gods couldn’t have treated us any better as they gave us the perfect weather for our Annual Lobster Party.  Continuing the tradition of past years, 23 Sackville and Port Elgin Rotarians and their guests met at Sue Purdy’s cottage for Rotary’s Annual Lobster Party.  Judging by the camaraderie of the participants, fun was the optimum word.
  The highlight of the afternoon was the Washer Toss Tournament, where organizer George and his partner Ove defended last year's championship.  Alas, it was not to be!   While they were in the final, our newest Rotarian-to-be, Chris Fierella and his wife Alex took home all the hardware.      Chris here displays his winning form.  Other highlights of the serious opening round show Rotarians showing no mercy on their opponents.
For those who did not enter the contest, serious discussions were taking place around the oval table.  
As the afternoon wound down, the reason everyone came was put on display.  A hungry Shayne led the procession to the food table.
By 8:00 pm, the party ended and in typical Rotarian manner, the cleanup took no time at all.  We can report, however, most Rotarians left with full bellies.
Thanks, must go to Sue for allowing us to take over her cottage for the afternoon.  Us steak guys couldn’t have been happier as Doug grilled a mean steak, cooked to perfection.  The rest of the committee, Sandy, Bill and George all pitched in to make this a complete success, not only for the meal, but for the Tournament as well.
