The Rotary Club of the Lowcountry held its 21st annual Family Oyster Roast and fundraiser Nov. 4 at White Oaks Park in Port Royal. Hundreds of people came out to help raise money through silent auctions and eating the plump juicy oysters. Also on hand for those less hearty were hot dogs and chili. Photos by Bob Sofaly.

Paige McKenzie spent her birthday on Nov. 4 attending her first oyster roast. Here, she timidly cuts into an oyster during the event.
