Fall is on its way and it’s bringing cooler weather, changes in the leaves and the annual Lobsterfest at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

Those who attend Lobsterfest on Oct. 9, a fundraiser that benefits Little Friends School and other community outreach projects, get to chow down on a fresh Maine lobster, while socializing with friends and family from the community.

“We do this every year for Little Friends and it is very huge for Little Friends,” said co-chairman of the event Nancy Travis. “We give them several thousands of dollars. It helps them pay for all of their utilities for the year.”

Travis, who has been nicknamed the “Lobster Queen, ” because of her involvement with the event, said the church is always so excited to be able to bring the community together.

“We are so excited that we can do this for the community every year,” Travis said. “St. Paul’s is excited about it and our church members are excited about it. We have so much fun doing it for our community.”

There are three different seatings for the event — 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. The cost to seat in is $30. There is also the ability for take out, which is $25 and lasts from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the church’s courtyard.

“It’s such a fun occasion,” said co-chairman Barbara Leet. “It brings the whole community out and everybody gets to have a nice evening and it is not very late.”

Travis warned that the 8 p.m. seating is usually the one that fills up the fastest, so anyone who would like to attend that seating should buy tickets as soon as possible.

Tickets are available at Butler Truax Jewelers, The Real Estate Gallery, Little Friends School and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church’s office.

Tickets will not be sold on the day of the event, because the lobster count will already be determined. Leet said the last day to purchase tickets will be Oct. 6.
