It’s Oyster Shuckin’ time – again!

The Lake Gaston Volunteer Fire Department is preparing to host its annual Spring Oyster Roast fundraiser, slated for Saturday, March 31 from noon until 4 p.m.
The event will once again be held on the grounds of True Story Acres Farm, located at 612 Blackridge Road, between La Crosse and Bracey, near both Tanglewood Shores Golf Club and Rosemont of Virginia Winery.
Tickets for the event are $35 each and include a full menu of all-you-can-eat raw, steamed, or fried oysters, fried fish, hushpuppies and coleslaw, with beer or wine included.
