The Sequim Valley Lions Club will host its sixth annual crab feed at Pioneer Park, 387 E. Washington St., from 3-7 p.m. Saturday, with locally purchased Dungeness crab.
There will be dinner, drinks, live music and a silent auction. Dinner includes a cooked crab, kernel corn, coleslaw, a roll and soda or water.
Pizza from Westside Pizza, beer and wine also will be available to purchase.
Whole crab dinners are $25, half are $18, pizza is $2 a slice and beer and wine are $5 each. Cash, checks and major credit cards will be accepted.
“Last year we served 250 dinners at $25 and you can’t get that (at that price) in a restaurant,” said club member David Blakeslee. “All the profits go to the club.”
Proceeds will go to the Lions Club to fund local Sequim charities for the sight- and hearing-impaired to provide exams and accommodation devices.
“Service is our motto and we’re trying to get bigger and better in the community to help more people,” Blakeslee said.
Among groups benefiting from the club this year have been the Greywolf PTA for its playground, the Sequim Food Bank, area veterans, and the Olympic Peninsula Academy’s Destination Imagination team for travel expenses to its finals plus individuals needing ramps built.
“I find it (our work) fulfilling and fun,” Blakeslee said. The club has 27 members.
The Sequim Lions Club meets the second and fourth Thursdays at the Paradise Restaurant and new members always are invited to join. For more information, visit e-clubhouse.org/sites/sequim_valley.
