Rotary Crab Feed Jan. 16 benefits education

Proceeds from the ever popular All You Can Eat Orofino Rotary Crab Feed, held from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Ponderosa, help fund Orofino Rotary Foundation scholarships.

Last year the tax-exempt foundation awarded $8,000 in scholarship monies to Orofino and Timberline high school students. Rotary is dedicated to providing scholarships, including memorial scholarships, to graduating students in School District #171 for their continued education.

These scholarships are funded by Rotary Club projects, fundraisers, and from business and individual contributions.

Dine at this fun community event and help support Rotary’s efforts toward continuing education. Tickets cost $22 for adults and $10 for ages 6 to 12 (under age five is free), and are available at the Ponderosa or from any Rotary Club member. In addition to crab you will enjoy ham, baked beans, potato salad and bread.
