Sheboygan's Early Bird Rotary Club served up Lobster dinners along with brats and burgers to over 600 guests recently at their Annual Lobster Boil in Fountain Park. The Club raises money for local service projects including providing three non-traditional student scholarships each year for area Technical College enrollment; and to support international service with a focus on ending polio, clean water, and "Shelter Boxes" for disaster relief. Jon Doll & Friends provided terrific music as our patrons graciously waited out some equipment problems causing delays in serving what some proclaimed as "the best lobsters yet." Working together to advance the lives of those in our community and around the globe – a great cause!
Many thanks to our event Sponsors – Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center, Prevea Health & Wellness, Reinbold Novak Funeral Home, MODIX Corporation, and Alliant Energy. In addition – providing products and/or services for the event were Festival Foods, Schwarz Fish Company, Midwest Communications, Zimmermann Company, 3 Sheeps Brewing, Ferrellgas, Advanced Disposal, H.
