Emily Markesteyn, Ogeechee Riverkeeper says “Last year the Oyster Roast was extremely successful and we are anticipating this year’s event to be even better.  We highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance because numbers are limited.  We want to show our appreciation to our supporters and raise funds to support our educational and environmental protection initiatives.  What better way to do it than celebrating with oysters on the Ogeechee”.
