Over $13,500 is being donated to causes identified by the Rotary Club of Woodstock from its annual fundraiser, the Shrimp and Catfish Dinner. Held on April 6, the event was staffed by members of the Rotary Club who served 486 residents from throughout the Shenandoah Valley.
Professionally prepared, the full course dinner at the Moose Lodge in Woodstock drew in enough diners to fill the lodge's parking lot and cause a line of parked cars down to U.S. 11 during the three hours that meals were served.
Beneficiaries of the event include Future Farmers of America, the Peter Muhlenberg Middle School Band Department, Interact Clubs at Central High School and Massanutten Military Academy and international Rotary projects.
This was the ninth year that the dinner has been sponsored by the Rotary Club.
More than $63,000 has been donated to local causes and charities from this one event, over the years.
The Rotary Club of Woodstock is over 80 years old. Members are current and retired owners and managers of local businesses and local professionals who give back to the community year-round by upholding the motto, Service above self. The Rotary Club of Woodstock meets at 12:05 p.m. every Wednesday at the Moose Lodge.
