Rotary Club 'Family Crab Feed' Povides Fun for Good Cause ~ By Bethany Monk

Angels Camp, C.A….The Angels-Murphys Rotary Club annual Family Crab Feed drew a crowd of nearly 400 people and raised more than $10,000 for community projects….



The event began at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Frogtown Fairgrounds, where the famous “Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee” is held each spring.

Following the social hour, people of all ages feasted upon handfuls of delectable crab and also enjoyed lasagna, salad, and tasty garlic bread, as the sat at tables that seemed to stretch a mile long in one of the Frogtown halls.

Proceeds from the Crab Feed will help support the myriad Angels-Murphys Rotary Club projects in the county. When asked about some of the programs the club sponsors, president John Brophy highlighted the organization’s scholarships for young people. Bret Hart and Vallecito high school students and students who attend rotary Leadership camps eligible for Rotary scholarships, according to the club’s pamphlet, available at the Crab Feed.

“You get to do something that reaches out to people who may have some needs,” said longtime Angels-Murphys Rotary Club member Al Armstrong.

Club members got the crab from a supplier in Stockton and prepared it themselves, he said, adding that there are about 40 members this year. Armstrong has been a member of the Angels-Murphys Rotary Club since the club’s inception in 1980.

Proceeds from the event will also help causes such as the Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program and Calaveras Search and Rescue volunteers, and will help purchase phone cards for men and women serving overseas, dictionaries for third-graders at Albert Michelson Elementary School in Murphys, and equipment for the Calaveras Children’s Dental Project.

Tickets for the Crab Feed were $35 per person and included dinner, live music and prize drawings.
