Volunteers are needed for the 27th annual Maryland Seafood Festival Sept. 10-12.

Sponsored by the Greater Annapolis Chamber of Commerce, the festival raises more than $250,000 for programs that serve the disabled, disadvantaged and elderly.

Festival volunteers get free admission and food coupons.

This year, the festival features the second annual volleyball tournament on Sept. 11, a National Guard sky-diving exhibition Sept. 11 and 12, a sand sculpture contest Sept. 12.

Entertainment includes the Coasters Sept. 10, The Hubcaps Sept. 11 and Mama Jama Sept. 12.

To sign up as a volunteer for the festival, call 268-7676.


There's lots more opportunity to enjoy the bounty of the Chesapeake before the Maryland Seafood Festival.

Try one of these offerings:

* A Crab and Ham Supper at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church in Edgewater on Saturday from 4 p.m. 7 p.m. The cost is $10.

* A crab feast at VFW Post 7464 in Grasonville from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.

* Another crab feast at VFW Post 304 on Chinquapin Round Road on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is $17. Food is served from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

* There's also a Shrimp Feast at the Cummings-Behlke American Legion Post at 830 Mayo Road from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The $15 fee includes all you can eat, games, and entertainment.


The second annual Jousting Tournament, sponsored by All Hallows Episcopal Church, will be held Sunday at the Davidson Ruritan Athletic Field on Route 424 near Route 214 at 2 p.m.

Medieval costume is the garb for around 30 jousters, ages 12 to 70, who will compete in four classes, novice to advanced.

Watching the fun is free, but a $5 parking donation is requested. (I wonder if ladies still have handkerchiefs to give their favored knights? Somehow Kleenex just isn't the same.)


The Eastport Historical Society is throwing a party for longtime Eastport residents at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Punch and munchies will be shared, as well as reminiscences of how the town used to be. Visitors are invited to bring photographs, diaries, letters and other memorabilia to show other participants. Sharing does not mean donating, although donations of artifacts and records are welcome.

The gathering is at the Barge House Museum near the foot of Second Street on Bay Drive.

For more information, call Peg Wallace at 268-1802.
