Aw, shucks!

If it’s steamed oysters you like (and even if it’s not!), then you need to attend the Rotary Club of Greenwood’s 31st Annual Oyster Roast & Seafood Bash.

As one of Greenwood’s premiere events, the oyster roast has grown into a must-attend social occasion that draws upwards of 1,000 guests each year and provides funds for local nonprofit groups and the programs they operate.

This year’s roast is from 4-8 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at the county Farmers Market near where the old civic center was off Highway 72 in Greenwood.

In addition to the heaping servings of steamed oysters, ticket-holders can enjoy an array of fried seafood and side dishes. Don’t like seafood of any kind? No problem, as there will also be chicken and chili available.

Drinks will be included, but if it’s a cold draft that pairs best with oysters, beer will be sold by the cup and will require separate ticket purchases at the door, cash only. In addition to the ample food supply, ticket-holders will be entertained with live music and door prizes.

Tickets are $40 each and are available from members of the Rotary Club of Greenwood, as well as Allegra Marketing Print Mail on Montague Avenue, Park Sterling Bank’s main office on Montague Avenue and First Citizens Bank on Main Street.

Because there is a need to ensure the correct amount of food is ordered and prepared, ticket sales end on Feb. 22. No tickets will be sold at the door. Also, guests are reminded  that coolers, off-site food and drinks are strictly prohibited.

Some of the nonprofit efforts supported through the club’s annual fundraiser include:

Angel Flight Soars Inc.

Boy Scouts of America 

Connie Maxwell Children’s Home

Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM)

Greenwood Family YMCA

Healthy Learners

Girls/Boys State

Grace Street Park children’s playground

Tickets are $40 each and are available from members of the Rotary Club of Greenwood, as well as Allegra Marketing Print Mail on Montague Avenue, Park Sterling Bank’s main office on Montague Avenue and First Citizens Bank on Main Street.
