Greater Albany Rotary Crab Fest

The 21st Annual GARC Crab Fest is February 1st, 2020 at Calapooia Brewing Company from 12-7pm. Tickets are $35 online, $40 at the door.

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotaryโ€™s main objective is service โ€” in the community, in the workplace. Although Rotary clubs develop autonomous service programs, all Rotarians are united in a global campaign to eradicate polio.

The 21st Annual GARC Crab Fest at Calapooia Brewing Company off Water and Hill in Albany is scheduled for February 1st, 2020! The hours are Noon - 8pm and ticket prices are $40. Each ticket gets you crab, pulled pork, or vegan option, The Depot's clam chowder, salad and all the fixin's. Soft drinks and coffee are free, wine and beer are sold by Calapooia. We'll start grilling oysters at Noon in the Oyster Garden for as long as supplies last. And don't forget to buy your lucky raffle tickets for your chance to win a basket with a value of at least $25.

Not everyone is familiar with Rotary International and what we at the Greater Albany Rotary Club (Oregon - Rotary District 5110) do other than work towards the eradication of polio ~ and we're "this close!". Every Rotary Club has their own preferred areas of interest but we like to focus on children, sustainable clean water and literacy both locally and internationally. This is a list of past and present service projects that our club has worked on in just the past few years. Your support through donations, sponsorships and attending our events helps us continue our work.
