Saint Martin’s Annual Crab Feed set for Feb. 20

New “green” feature:  nearly 100 percent of the waste will be recycled!

Feb. 5, 2009

Saint Martin’s University will hold its 5th annual “all you can eat” crab feed on Friday, Feb. 20 from 5-10 p.m. in the Marcus Pavilion. Tickets are $35 per person if purchased before Feb. 20 or $40 at the door. The price includes all you can eat crab, unlimited non-alcoholic drinks, $2 beer and wine, entertainment and a dessert auction.

All proceeds benefit Saint Martin’s intercollegiate athletic teams.

“This year’s event also fits with the University’s efforts to ‘go green’,” said Bob Grisham, athletics director. “Nearly all the waste will be recycled including the plates, knives and forks, thanks to the cooperation of Thurston County Solid Waste and the LeMay Company.”

“We are really pleased to make this a ‘green’ event,” commented Roy Heynderickx, the University’s new president. “Our Catholic, Benedictine tradition calls us to steward God’s creation carefully.”
