St. Paul’s features shellfish
Thursday night, one of the most anticipated events will arrive at St. Paul’s Epsicopal Church in Selma when the annual Lobsterfest begins.
More than 400 tickets were sold for this year’s event, organizer Nancy Travis said. Those who purchased tickets, Travis said, can begin arriving at 5 p.m., depending on their choice of dining.
“We want to remind people that have takeout tickets that they can pick up their plates from 5 to 7 p.m. and they don’t even have to get out of the car,” she said. “They just have to make sure they have their tickets with them. Then we have eat-in seatings at 6, 7 and 8 p.m., and they can arrive 30 minutes prior to their seating and enjoy refreshments and entertainment in the lower hall.”
Entertainment will be provided by Patty Campbell, Harry Gamble and Miriam Coffee, who will take turns providing piano music.
When reflecting on the process of making the Lobsterfest possible, Travis said she was grateful to have so many hard workers on her side.
“This could not even be possible without all of the wonderful volunteers here at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church,” she said.
“It takes everybody doing their part to bring this together.”
All of the money raised goes to outreach programs like Little Friends School and other projects in Selma and Dallas County.
For those who have never been, Travis said prepare to be amazed.
“It’s a great event,” she said. “If you’ve never experienced it before, it is fabulous.”
Diners will be greeted at the door by a Maitre ‘D and shown to their table.
Travis said someone will even help diners put on their bibs.
Shell crackers and a “how to” guide will also be placed on the tables.
