St. Joseph's Annual Crab Feed

Crab Feed is the major fundraiser for your Parent’s Club.

The profits from the Crab Feed Dinner are used to support St Joseph’s teachers and students as well as special programs.

Profit last year was $5,000.

The dinner also is a parish-wide opportunity to come together for fellowship. The 2011 Crab Feed had over 600 attendees!

Families are required to give three (3) volunteer hours to Crab Feed (2 hours for pre-school families). Sign-up sheets are typically in the lobby weeks prior to the event with a variety of duties available. This is a very busy but FUN night and we need EVERYONE’S help to make the dinner a success.
