        Shrine Club Oyster Roast

Shrine Club Oyster Roast



The Chesapeake Shrine Club recently held its 37th annual oyster roast at Shrine Temple in Greenbrier. The rainy day did not deter the huge crowd from enjoying raw, fried, and roasted oysters. Entertainment was provided by local band Hot Cakes. Proceeds will benefit the Shrine Club.
