The Knox County Democratic Committee will present its annual John Syrett Lobster Bake on Saturday, Aug. 20 at a splendid waterfront location in Owls Head from 4 to 7 p.m. This is a green, rain-or-shine event.

The bake is a major fundraiser for the KCDC. Sponsorships of $100, $250 or $500 are welcome and necessary to fund the local election-year agenda. Businesses as well as individuals may become sponsors. Each sponsor will receive two tickets. Individual tickets are $30.

Years of experience are behind the bake. Lobster is featured, but corn, mussels, veggie burgers and other grill items, salads, beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee and homemade cookies provide for all tastes. Everyone of good will is welcome to join local Democrats, active or not, summer residents and visitors for this casual scenic afternoon. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree will be a special guest.

To sponsor or purchase tickets, please visit or contact Stu Thro at 594-8611 or or contact Bonnie Post at 594-9263 or All tickets must be purchased by Thursday, Aug. 18 in order to attend the event.
