Fom Brian Gray of
the Paradise Rotary Club:
So, Feb 1, 2020 the Paradise Crab Feed will be held at the Chico
Elks Lodge, like last year.
With a combined effort, we raised over $40,000 with a lot of
Rotary Clubs pitching in and attending.
But, more importantly, we showed Rotary unity, and that Paradise
would be renewed.

Bring guests, who you think you can interest in
becoming a member, to meetings. Your
dinner and your guest’s dinner will be paid for by the Club. In the meantime
please invite Durham business owners and/or managers to one of our meetings.
The program was Kristen Cargile’s Crab Feed.
It is all in the photos below.
Fourteen Years Ago
From all reports the Crab Feed was a
success. The members did an outstanding
job of getting the food served. Many
members received complements from those attending. Chris reported that the tentative figures
show a profit of $4,670 however Frank Spiteri’s costs have not been deducted
and there is some additional ticket money to come in. All members are asked to report to the
treasurer whether they have already paid for their tickets and if not how many tickets they are to be charged for. Absent any report, all members, as previously
announced, will be charged for two tickets.
Also, the members should know that when we
went to the Market (formerly the Holiday Market) for more ice during the Crab
Feed, the market, upon learning what it was for, donated $200 of services and
merchandise (including the ice). Thank
them when you go into the market.
