Crab Feast 2017

The 72nd annual Rotary Club of Annapolis Crab Feast will be held on Friday, August 4th, 2017, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.  This special event is not only the world’s largest crab feast but also a major fund-raiser that benefits local community and cultural organizations.

The feast is all-you-can eat and drink, including large and #1 male crabs (the big ones) plus Maryland vegetable crab soup, sweet Maryland corn on the cob, beef barbeque sandwiches, draft beer, and assorted sodas and water.  A bake sale and cake raffle can finish your feast with sweetness.  Also for sale will be Crab Feast T-shirts and other memorabilia.

Hero of the week

Carl Schneider

Member Since: 07/1990

  1. Why did you join Rotary? As a government servant, prior Jaycee member and Broadneck Federation president I have always pursued service to my community, country and the world. When I became Director of Research at the Naval Academy and was proposed by the USNA Director of Information Technology for membership in Annapolis Rotary Club, I was pleased to join.
  2. When did you really become a member, meaning, when did it click or what was the WOW moment? When President Bill Davis asked me to chair the Ambassador Scholarship (now Global Grant) committee in our club, I soon became member and chair of the District 7620 Scholarship committee. I have served as Lane Director twice and have never declined to help anyone in Rotary who requested help.
  3. Why do you stay a member of Rotary? As Nate Niles once said to me, you will find as you age and things change that Rotary becomes even more important to your life.
