Rotary Prepares for 4th Annual Crabfest

Rotarian/Auctioneer Mike Lippiatt


Rotarian Mike Lippiatt demonstrates hidden skills as an auctioneer during Tuesday’s Rotary Club meeting at the Dixie Girl on Central Avenue.

Lippiatt incited a bidding frenzy over a New Mexico Magazine Calendar, escalating the final bid tendered by Rotarian James Chrobocinski of Zia Realty Group to $26.

The calendar is loaded with southwest photographs, which match the decor of Chrobocinski’s new offices on Trinity Drive.  

Lippiatt will team up with Rotarian/longtime auctioneer Jill Cook to conduct a live auction extravaganza for the Rotary Club’s largest fundraiser of the year – Crab Fest – set for Feb. 23 at the Knights of Columbus Hall on DP Road.

Tickets are $45 for the all-you-can-eat crab and prawn meal catered by the Blue Window Bistro and can be purchased at CB FOX, the Chamber of Commerce, Aspen Copies and from local Rotarians.
