Rotary club to shell out the oysters Saturday

Aww, shucks. It's time for the Bluffton Rotary Club's annual Oyster Roast.

The roast will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Bluffton Oyster Factory Park in old town Bluffton. Tickets are $25 (kids 12 and younger get in free), and include all-you-can-eat steamed May River oysters, chili, hot dogs, brats and french fries. Sodas, beer and wine are available at an additional charge. Local bluegrass band Low Country Boil will perform, and there will be a bonfire to keep folks warm.

The event is held rain or shine. Money raised benefits the Rotary club's charitable efforts. Bluffton Rotary meets at 7:30 a.m. Wednesdays at the Rotary Community Center at Oscar J. Frazier Park.
