NORWICH – Lobster – with a side of politics – will be served up at the Chenango Republican Committee’s fundraiser of the year. The 2007 Lobersterfest is set for noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 22 at the Canasawacta Country Club.
For over 30 years, Lobsterfest has been a tradition in Chenango County, and for the last 12 years, the republican committee has been sponsoring the event.
“Lobsterfest is the most non-political, political event in the county,” Committee Chairman Thomas Morrone said, explaining that politicians from both sides of the aisle usually attend the event. According to Morrone, already committed to attending the event are Senator Thomas Libous, Senator James Seward, Assemblyman Clifford Crouch, Assemblyman Gary Finch and Assemblyman Peter Lopez. Several other elected officials have been invited and are likely to be at the event.
