Give Mom a lobster dinner for Mother’s Day

For people looking for a different present for Mother’s Day this year, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newnan is offering a novel opportunity -— a full, lobster dinner.

Members of the church are taking orders for complete dinners to take home on the day before Mother’s special day. The only thing left to supply is the candlelight.

Since all of the lobsters will be flown in live from Maine, they will have to be ordered by May 1.

Purchasers will receive an e-mail reminder with time and directions on how to pick up their treat.

A full dinner includes a 1.25-pound lobster, corn and new potatoes for $20 each. Free delivery for orders of 10 within the Newnan city limits.

Customers can also order live lobsters for $15 each, without the extras.

Orders can be picked up May 8 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at St. Paul’s, 576 Roscoe Road, Newnan.

Customers will be able to pick up the steaming-hot dinners in time for a romantic, Saturday-night supper.

Lobsters can also be refrigerated and served cold, in a salad, made into a stew or added to omelets on Mother’s Day itself.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the St. Paul’s charitable efforts which include Bethlehem Ministries, One Roof and the community medical clinic, the support organization for needy people in the Newnan area.

Orders can be placed online at www.newnanlobsterfest.org, by e-mail at orders@newnanlobsterfest.org or by phone 8:30 a.m. - noon, Monday through Friday at 770-253-4264.
