42nd Annual Oyster Roast

The 42nd Annual Oyster Roast, sponsored by the Chesapeake Shrine Club of Khedive Shrine, enjoyed a huge turnout. What seafood lover could resist all-you-can-eat fish, clam strips and oysters--raw, roasted and fried--along with fries, hushpuppies, slaw, and beverages of all varieties? The Janitors provided live music so that those who weren't too full from the feasting, could dance the afternoon away.
