Delicious steamed crabs, tasty grilled chicken with Richard’s famous rub, fresh vegetables, homemade baked beans and more all served up while the Starlight Orchestra serenades the crowd.
That’s what is in store for attendees to Cabin John’s Chicken and Crab Feast on Sept. 15 at the Clara Barton Community Center. The food and fun are served up starting at 2 pm. The 15-piece jazz and swing band gets underway shortly thereafter. The fun continues until 6 pm.
The crab feast is the largest community event of the year and typically brings together some 600 Cabin Johners and friends. It is also an important fundraiser for the Cabin John Citizens’ Association.
Enjoy the food, fun, and camaraderie for $16 a ticket. Or save $2 by buying your ticket in advance from a block coordinator or ticket seller. Proceeds support The Village News, mailed free to all CJ residents, as well as the Fourth of July celebration, holiday party, and other CJ activities.
The Crab Feast is a success each year because of the many, many volunteers who pitch in. Please consider volunteering for advance preparations or for an hour or two from 9 am to 7 pm on the 15th. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call the crab feast co-coordinators Allison and Patrick de Gravelles at 301-742-4762 and 301-605-7267, respectively.
