Special to The R-C |

The Carson Valley Sertoma Club’s annual crab and tri-tip dinner is Feb. 15.

Proceeds help fund the hot-soup program for the Douglas County Senior Center.

The dinner is 5 p.m. at the St. Gall Pastoral Center, 1343 Centerville Lane in Gardnerville.

Due to its popularity organizers moved the dinner to the church which can accommodate double the capacity.

The hot-soup program, run by Young At Heart, serves soup to about 120 seniors daily, and has been going on for many years.

There will also be a silent auction and a 50-50 drawing added to the evening’s activities.

The dinner menu includes Dungeness crab clusters harvested off the Northern California coast about two days prior to the dinner serving. Prime-cut tri-tip will be served in addition to the crab, along with baked potatoes (with butter, sour cream or chives), salad, dinner rolls, soup, dessert and coffee, tea or water. Wine, beer or soft drinks will be available at the no-host bar.

The cost is $35 for adults and $20 for children 12 and younger.

The crab feed usually raises up to $750, all of which goes to funding the hot-soup program.

Tickets can be purchased from the Douglas Senior Center or contact Doug Petersen at 782-6349.
