Be “Bay Responsible” and help Rotary and Annapolis Green make this a Zero-Waste event again this year. That means that NOTHING will go to the landfill. EVERYTHING will be recycled or composted. In just two months the Crab trays, crab shells & all other food waste, all paper products, spoons, knives, and even wooden mallets go in compost. Yes, that includes spoons, knives, and the clear beer cups too. They look like plastic, but are made from plants and therefore, are compostable! All that will turn into beautiful soil enrichment for the garden in just two months! Visit the Annapolis Green table to learn more and order some Crab Feast compost for your garden.

For the seventh consecutive year, Annapolis Rotary is working with the non-profit Annapolis Green to make the Crab Feast a ZERO-Waste event. In each of the past two years, more than 14.5 TONS of waste has been composted, completing the circle of life – from the Bounty of the Bay to local gardens.

As Clawdia the Crab says, “Don’t be shellfish… Recycle and Compost!” Follow the Green REF… make the right call and recycle and compost at the Crab Feast - 2019

Also this year, look for Annapolis Green's NAPTOWN TAP, portable water dispensers where you can fill up your compostable cup with fresh, filtered water! It's part of the non-profit's Refill Revolution to eliminate waste from single-use plastic.

Crab Feast 2015

To purchase tickets, just click on the picture!

 

Annapolis, MD (March 23, 2015) – The Rotary Club of Annapolis is gearing up for its 70th annual Crab Feast scheduled for Friday, Aug. 7, 2015, 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 which 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, all-American hot dogs, watermelon, draft beer, and assorted sodas and water. A bake sale and cake raffle can finish your feast with sweetness. Regional Watermelon Queens will slice and serve fresh watermelon. Also for sale will be Crab Feast T-shirts and other memorabilia.
Nearly 2,500 people are expected to attend and finish off 320 bushels of crabs, 3,400 ears of corn, 100 gallons of crab soup, 1,800 hot dogs, 150 pounds of beef barbeque, and hundreds of gallons of soft drinks and beer. The event will be held rain or shine, as most of the tables are protected from the weather.
Annapolis Green, a local environmental group, is working with the Rotary Club of Annapolis to compost all the crabs and other food, utensils, and beverages at crab feast as was done in 2014. The two groups want to make this charitable fund raiser a zero waste event.
Last year the two groups held one of the largest recycling and composting events they have conducted. One of the largest challenges is completing the job so the stadium is clean and ready for the next day’s activities.
About 20,000 pounds of food waste will be collected. In just about two months after the crab feast, the watermelon rinds, corn cobs, brown paper, and even the crab shell bits will turn into compost that will benefit gardens all over the area. Plastic will be collected, too, to reach the event goal of sending nothing to a landfill.
Crab feast vendors are doing their part, too. Responding to Rotary and Annapolis Green, they are replacing polystyrene or Styrofoam – which is not recyclable – with containers made of paper. It’s all part of a campaign to feast responsibly.

The Annapolis Rotary Club Dedicates its 70th Annual Crab Feast to One of its Own

George Phelps (1926-2015)

The Rotary Club of Annapolis honors the late George Phelps Jr., 88, of Annapolis and dedicates the 70th Rotary Club Crab Feast in his name.

            A member of the club since July 1, 1983, George passed away Feb. 19, 2015, at his home in the Parole community after a lengthy illness. His contributions to the community and to the club are worthy of recognition. He and his wife, the late Marion Phelps, desired the very best for Annapolis and its residents and worked diligently to make good things happen.

            George served in the Army during World War II in Europe, returned home and became the county’s first African American law enforcement officer, serving as the county’s Deputy Sheriff. A successful entrepreneur, he founded Phelps Protection Systems, which for many years provided security for the Rotary crab feast. In addition, he was an incredible supporter of this fund-raiser, selling hundreds of tickets and making this a joyous reunion for his family and friends. George was a Rotary Paul Harris Fellow and a Sustaining Member, giving annually to support this service organization. A Paul Harris Fellow is a Rotarian recognized by Rotary International for their commitment of both time and treasure to the values and mission of Rotary.

            He and Marion started a local chapter of Opportunities Industrialization Centers. He was affiliated with many local public service organizations in addition to Rotary International. He was a lifetime member of the NAACP , a member and Hall of Fame inductee of the Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce, a member of American Legion Cook-Pinkney Post 175, a member and honoree of the North County Political Forum, an original member of the Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center Redevelopment Task Force, and a founder of the Layman’s Corp. of Anne Arundel County, which was instrumental in registering a record number of African American voters.

            In their honor, a street in his community, Middle Street, was renamed the George and Marion Phelps Lane in recognition of their exemplary service to the community.

            Won’t you join us on Friday, August 7th in the Annapolis Rotary Club’s 70th Annual Crab Feast and participate in an event very close to the heart of the Annapolitan.

HERO Campaign

July 23, 2015

This year’s event is proud to join hands with the HERO Foundation.

About the HERO Campaign

The HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers®, seeks to end drunk driving tragedies nationwide by promoting the use of safe and sober designated drivers. Our goal is simple: to register one million designated drivers and make having a designated driver be as automatic as wearing a seatbelt.

The HERO Campaign is a federally registered, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that partners with law enforcement agencies, schools and colleges, bars, taverns and restaurants,  the U.S. Navy, professional sports teams, state divisions of highway safety and community chapters across the country.

In 2000 John Elliott, a Graduate of the Naval Academy, was struck and killed by a drunk driver on his way home for his mother’s birthday. The driver had been arrested on DUI charges and released only to get back in the car drunk, killing himself and John.

HERO – Origin of the name: John distinguished himself as a Human Education Resource Officer (HERO) at the Naval Academy. HERO’s are elected by their peers to counsel and mentor other members of their company. John was selected as the outstanding HERO in his graduating class.

The HERO Campaign asks everyone to be or have a safe and sober designated driver whenever they are drinking alcoholic beverages to prevent drunk driving tragedies, which claim over 10,000 American lives annually, and injure tens of thousands more.  In memory of John and all the victims of DUI, we ask you to Be a HERO. Be a Designated Driver®.  Our goal is to end drunk driving by making the use of designated drivers be as automatic as wearing a seatbelt.

So, as we get set to enjoy an evening of good crabs and good fellowship – let’s all Be a HERO.  Further information on the HERO Foundation and its outreach, you may go to http://herocampaign.org/
