NORTH SHORE – Rotarians are busy preparing for their 42nd annual Catfish Fry and Crawfish Boil, which will be held Saturday May 20 at the North Shore Rotary Pavilion behind the courthouse. Tickets are on sale now, available from any North Shore Rotarian, and local businesses such as Capital Bank, Pine Forest Jewelry, North Channel Chamber and many others.

The location for the event is the Rotary Pavilion behind the courthouse, at 14350 Wallisville Road. Serving of food will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. but come early and enjoy the food, bid in the auctions, and perhaps win a prize.

There will also be a silent and live auction, according to Adam Lund, chairman of the Fish Fry this year.

Raffle tickets are $100, and meal only tickets are $10. The raffle ticket also will be good for any of the 20 prizes, all of which have a value higher than $100.

Each year the club raises several $100,000 dollars which is returned by funding community projects, scholarships, and physical improvements to the North Shore area.

Major sponsors for the Fry include Blue Northern, Channelview ISD Education Foundation, Community Toyota, Galena Park ISD Education Foundation, and San Jacinto College Foundation.
