2017 Swamp Angel Oyster Roast
Annual Oyster Roast Our Biggest Success Ever!
A record 141 guests attended the 9th Annual Swamp Angel Oyster Roast on January 28th, where historian Mark Jones spoke about the 8-inch rifled cannon shells that fell in downtown Charleston on August 22 and 23, 1863. We also raised $1,600 from the event, to help fund educational events throughout the year.
FJE neighbor Andrew Postlewaite, owner of The Smoking Pot catering company, provided delicious oysters and tasty chili. Neighbors Stacey Daffin and Robin Hardin prepared hotdogs and desserts and Susan Whittle added a dozen extra special dessert brownies. Thanks to all who made this the best Swamp Angel roast!
Next year, the 10th Annual roast will feature City of Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg as speaker.
