Crab Feed finds new home, same great taste posted on 02/01/2019

The Hoodland Women’s Club’s (HWC) annual Crab Feed will move a little bit down the road, this year held at the Mt. Hood Lion’s Club, but the delicious Dungeness will remain the same.

And even though the crab season got a late start this year, organizer Brigette Romeo anticipates a good haul of the crustaceans for the event (the 10th annual), adding that they have never run out of crab for the participants.

“We’ve done okay there,” she said.

The event, which is capped at approximately 125 people, offers a no-host bar, raffle baskets and dinner starting at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, March 2. Tickets are $25 per person and can be bought at the Welches branch of the Clackamas County Bank, Welches Mountain Building Supply and the Welches Liquor Store.

Busy Bee Catering caters the event (including making clam chowder, garlic bread, desserts and more), which serves as a way for the HWC to thank the community.

“It’s not a money maker for us,” Romeo said, adding that the guest list typically includes the County Commissioners. “(It’s a) way to get community together.”

The Mt. Hood Lions Club is located at the intersection of Hwy. 26 and Woodsey Way in Welches.

Crab Facts

From the South Coast Oregon Directory

Dungeness crab was reportedly named after a small fishing village on the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Washington state.

They have been harvested commercially along the Pacific Coast since the late 1880s.

Abundance of these highly prized crustaceans fluctuates.

Total coastwide production ranges from 35-55 million lbs. annually.
