Annual Crab Feast & Picnic

Bollinger Party Palace, Hereford
Saturday in Aug. (date TBA) at 1 p.m.
Cost: TBA

The summer gathering will be held jointly with the Hereford Optimist Club at the Bollinger Party Palace (aka Antique Fire Station #2 at Chuck Bollinger’s home in Hereford). The spread will include steamed crabs and shrimp, plus hot dogs and burgers on the grill. To aid in planning, tell your call captain which of those you will eat (all of the above is okay) and what item you will bring for the buffet table. Also consider bringing a crab mallet and a folding chair. Cost per person depends on the market price for crabs and will be posted shortly before the event.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS TO THE CRAB FEAST (236 Everett Road): From I 83, take Exit 27 Hereford and go east on Mt. Carmel Rd. to the traffic light at York Rd. Turn right on York Rd. and go about ¼ mile to Everett Rd. (just south of Monkton Rd.).  Proceed about ½ mile, and you will see a group of mailboxes and three driveways on the right. Turn into the third driveway and go all the way up the hill to the blue barn. Park in the grass on the right side.

50th Anniversary Party (a past event)

On June 17, 2007, the Optimist Club of Timonium officially turned 50, and the club celebrated the milestone at a dinner party held at the Timonium Holiday Inn Select on June 23, 2007. The anniversary dinner was a fitting tribute to the club’s long service to youth and the community, and it set the stage for continuing service from a vibrant club in the years ahead.
