Niantic, CT, August 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For the past 48 years, a tradition of Summer Suppers at Niantic Community Church has attracted locals, summer folks and day trippers alike. The last supper of the season is a lobster stew dinner that is a rare commodity in these parts according to, Maine native Sonya Hoisington. She lives in Niantic now but makes a trip to her hometown in Maine to raid her cousins lobster boat just in time to drive her catch back to Connecticut, meet up with co-chair Kim Birk and create a lobster stew with generous portions of lobster in each serving.
The meal ($20) includes a salad, corn on the cob and brownies for dessert. Alternative menu offerings for the dinner include taco or chicken salads ($12) as well as a children’s menu ($5) of hot dogs, chips and dessert. Advance tickets are required for the August 12, 5:30 p.m., dinner and are available now by calling the church office or by calling Sonya Hoisington at (860)235-0170.
“If you’ve never had fresh Maine lobster stew, here’s your chance,” said Hoisington. “From the Maine lobsterman, right to your Niantic table.”
Take-out is always available as well as seating in the air conditioned dining hall. Niantic Community Church is located at 170 Pennsylvania Ave., Niantic. (860) 739-6208. Visit www.NianticCommunityChurch.org.
