The Rotary Club of Hampton County sponsored their 2nd Annual Oyster Roast at Richfield Plantation in Yemassee, SC on Saturday night, February 18th.
The Oyster Roast helps fund many literacy projects in our schools and other projects that our club is and will be working on.
We had over 100 in attendance and raised close to $4,000 dollars from this event. Andy Kearse and Bryan Lindell were the entertainment and they did a fabulous job!
Oysters, BBQ and other items were enjoyed by all.
Thank you to all of our Rotarians and their spouses and the many sponsors that helped make this event a success!
