October 20, 2007- Ewan, NJ

Yahoo...my first notification from an oyster dinner organizer!

This is a very nice oyster dinner in Southern New Jersey----close to Glassboro (my hometown).

I don't always attend this dinner as it is often on the same date an Oyster/Chicken Salad dinner in Daretown, NJ. However, this year there is no conflict (to my knowledge) and I plan on dining in lovely Ewan.

Oyster Girl,

The next Oyster & Ham Supper at the Ewan Fire Company will be on October 20th, 2007. Start time is 3:00 pm, we usually finish up around 5:30. Cost is $14 for adults and $6 for children.
