The Rotary Club of Tryon’s Shrimpfest was held on Saturday, Sept. 15 at Harmon Field. Approximately 300 people were in attendance. The revelers were treated to shrimp and bratwurst along with desserts and an evening of entertainment that featured a live auction, door prizes and dancing.
This is the 13th consecutive year that the Rotary Club has hosted the festival, which is one of the main fundraisers for the club. The club’s members organized the event and prepared and served the food and refreshments. In addition, they were supported by the Polk County High School Interact Club and numerous local businesses and individuals. As a result, Rotary officials said Shrimpfest 2012 was a success and will help generate funds that allow the Rotary Club to continue its financial support for numerous community projects.
