On behalf of the Rotary Club of New Canaan, I want to express my deepest appreciation to everyone who came out to support our annual family Lobsterfest. The turnout was fantastic, the weather cooperated and a great time was had by all.

The Lobsterfest is our largest fundraiser of the year with all proceeds going to organizations that help people and change lives -- both local and global -- so we are always very grateful to everyone who comes out to support this wonderful family event.

Our great sponsors also deserve special recognition: Hobbs, Inc.; Hoyt Funeral Home; Santella Electric; Karl Chevrolet; Charter Oak Brewing; Tony's Deli; The New Canaan Historical Society; Faith Kerchoff Advertising and Design; The New Canaan Beautification League; Pagano's Seafood; and the Rucci Law Group. We thank them all for their continued support.

We also must thank the Service League of Boys (SLOBS) who came to lend a helping hand. They did a fantastic job and helped to make this year's Lobsterfest the wonderful event that it was.

And finally, I want to thank the members of the Rotary Club of New Canaan, who work long hours to make the Lobsterfest a success and who make being a Rotarian so rewarding.

With sincere thanks to all,
