Annual Crab Feed is Jan. 26
The Yachats Lions Club annual Crab Feed will feature “all the crab you can eat” on Saturday, Jan. 26. The trek to Yachats to eat Dungeness crab is a tradition for many families and groups. For many years, the Yachats Lions have served more than 1,500 pounds of fresh crab to an average of 500 people at afternoon seatings at the Yachats Commons and the Yachats Lions Hall. The Commons is located at 441 Highway 101 N, and the Lions Hall is one block west of there at 344 Fourth St.
The $40 per person tickets may be purchased locally, or they may be ordered by mail, email, or phone, indicating time and venue. To order by mail, send to Yachats Lions Crab Feed, P.O. Box 66, Yachats, OR 97498; by email, send to firstname.lastname@example.org; by phone, call Kevin or Peggy, 541-563-5629. Locally, people may purchase tickets at Judith’s Kitchen Tools or the Lions Thrift Store in downtown Yachats.
Seating is available at the Yachats Commons on Jan. 26 at 12:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (reserved seating only – groups of 6 or more), and at the Yachats Lions Hall at 4 p.m. The 12:30 p.m. seating is for anyone who may wish to eat early and does not have reserved seating. The 4 p.m. seating at the Lions Hall is open to first come, first served cafeteria style seating. Some people prefer the Lions Hall venue, as they get a chance to meet new people there.
Debra Novgrod, coordinator of this year’s crab feed, said, “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 eat.” 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, and great fun.”
All proceeds from the Crab Feed support the Lions Club’s community service projects, such as scholarships to graduating seniors, food pantries, the pre-school and after-school programs of the Yachats Youth and Family Activities Program, South Lincoln County Resources programs, and eyeglasses for children and adults.
Upholding the motto, “We Serve,” the Yachats Lions Club is celebrating over 68 years of service to Yachats and south Lincoln County. The Yachats Lions Thrift Store, located across Fourth Street from the Yachats Commons, has served our community for more than 40 years.
Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization, with 100+ years of serving humanity, over 1.4 million men and women, in 47 thousand clubs in 200+ countries and regions.
