It’s that time of year again for the Yachats Lions Club Annual Crab Feed! When January 30th rolls up to the door of the Yachats Commons, the Lions Club will feature “all the Crab you can eat” starting at 4pm!
The annual trek to Yachats to devour delicious Dungeness Crab is a tradition for families and groups from all over Oregon and Washington. For many years, the Yachats Lions have served thousands upon thousands of fresh crab to an average of 500 people at two locations. The Yachats Commons and the Yachats Lions Hall. The Commons is located on Highway 101 at the intersection of 101 and 4th St. The Lions Hall is one block toward the beach from there on 4th.
Tickets are $35 per person and are available by mail, phone or e-mail: Yachats Lions Crab Feed, P.O. Box 66, Yachats, OR 97498, call Kevin or Peggy at 541-563-5629 or E-mail your ticket requests to LionsCrabFeed2016@gmail.com indicating time and location.
But you can also actually by tickets LIVE, from a REAL PERSON at Judith’s Kitchen Tools at the C&K Market Plaza in Yachats!
There are two seatings at the Commons: at 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. for those who want to eat early. The regular Lions Hall seating starts at 4 p.m. We have had individual groups as large as 36 people at this seating. The 4 p.m. seating at the Commons is reserved for groups of 6 or more only! The Lions Hall is open to first come first serve cafeteria style seating. Some folks prefer the Lions Hall as they get a chance to meet new people.
Debra Novgrod, coordinator of the popular crab feed this year says, “We get great support from the community and local businesses in Yachats, Waldport and Newport. South Beach Fish Market cooks and cleans the best tasting local crab you’ll ever enjoy.” Novgrod added, “In addition to all the Crab you can eat (until the food is gone) the menu includes: Coleslaw, French Bread, Baked Beans, Coffee, Soda & GREAT FUN thrown in at no extra charge!”
All proceeds from the annual crab feed fundraiser supports Lions Community service projects with scholarships to graduating seniors, to food pantries, the Pre-school and after school programs of the Yachats Youth and Family program, South Lincoln Resources programs and eyeglasses for children and adults. With the motto “WE SERVE,” Yachats Lions Club is celebrating 65 years of service to Yachats and South Lincoln County. The Yachats Lions Thrift Store, across 4th Street from the Yachats Commons, has served our community for more than 40 years.
So come help the Lions Club continue to help the community. Remember, it’s all you can eat! And they’ll even let you get crabby about that it happens only once a year!
