Fire company’s Oyster Supper a treasured tradition


LAVALLETTE- Continuing an 80-year tradition, the Lavallette Volunteer Fire Company is gearing up to hold the annual Oyster Supper.

The Oyster Supper will take place on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the fire house at 125 Washington Ave.

“It’s a time honored Lavallette tradition that people look forward to,” said Councilman James Borowski, who is a member of the fire company. “People who have left Lavallette come back to meet old friends, reacquaint themselves with friends that they had as well as meet some new friends.

“It’s just a special event that Lavallette has that really brings the community together and makes the whole Christmas season very special since we begin it in this fashion every year,” Councilman Borowski said.

Tickets can be bought at the door, with adult tickets costing $15 and $7 for children under 12. Takeout is also available.

On the menu for this year are firehouse classics, including fried oysters and ham with coleslaw and potato salad as side dishes. For dessert there will be an array of cookies and brownies.
