SEVENTH ANNUAL BETTENDORF ROTARY “LOBSTERFEST” SET FOR JUNE 8TH
THE National Bank presents the meal that serves the community

BETTENDORF, IA – As it prepares to host the Seventh Annual “Lobsterfest” presented by THE National Bank, the Bettendorf Rotary Club looks toward another successful year of serving the meal that provides service to the Quad City Area community (www.bettendorfrotary.com/lobsterfest).

The New England-style lobster boil is set for Saturday, June 8th – 5:30 to 10 PM – at Rivermont Collegiate, 1821 Sunset Drive in Bettendorf. Tickets are priced at $75.00 each or a table of eight for $520.00 (a savings of $10 per ticket). They can be purchased by calling (563) 445-4264 or visiting

www.bettendorfrotary.com/tickets. The event is open to the general public.

THE National Bank (www.thenb.com) is in its second consecutive year as presenting sponsor and is pleased to add to its service to the community with this event. The club also values its involvement with Scott Community College’s Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management programs (http://www.eicc.edu/adultlearning/programs/career/culinary/culinary.html). These members help prepare the meal and, with a newly expanded relationship with Bettendorf Rotary, will result in further scholarship opportunities for SCC students.

In addition, “Lobsterfest” involves several groups such as the Culinary Kids of Family Resources, Inc. and Boy Scout Troop 24 that assist other volunteers in delivering the fresh meal of Maine lobsters.

Thanks to funds raised at last year’s event, the Bettendorf Rotary Club’s Charitable Giving Board awarded direct grants to area charities totaling $20,000. The club also awarded $6,000 in scholarships to students pursuing higher education.

Bettendorf Rotary Club (www.bettendorfrotary.com), chartered on May 22, 1957, has more than 100 members fulfilling the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” in a variety of local, regional and national community volunteer projects. The club meets each Wednesday at Noon at Fortune Garden Restaurant, 2211 Kimberly Road, Bettendorf. The club also has a page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/bettendorfrotary).

All clubs are part of Rotary International (www.rotary.org), founded in 1905 by Paul Harris, a Chicago businessman and University of Iowa alumnus. The international organization, now based in Evanston, IL, has more than one million members participating with 32,000 clubs located in more than 200 countries.
