TOGA Volunteer Party Is May 18, 2019 - Don't Miss the Fun and Great Food



SAVE THE DATE - - May 18, TOGA Volunteer Party


The sixth annual TOGA Volunteer Appreciation Party will be May 18 at the Piankatank Community League building near Gloucester, VA. If you have volunteered to help TOGA in the past, or if you are planning to volunteer this year, we look forward to seeing you!


This year, as in the past 5 years, TOGA will supply plenty of local and delicious unshucked and shucked oysters for your enjoyment. We ask you to bring the fixings for your favorite oyster dish, and you can prepare them for others to share at the party. There are stoves and ovens at the facility. If you don't have a favorite oyster dish, please bring a side dish or dessert to share with your TOGA volunteer friends. TOGA will also provide soft drinks and adult beverages.


We'll have lots to discuss with fellow oyster gardeners in a relaxed atmosphere. With all the rain, some of our members lost nearly all of their oysters, and others are complaining they need a shaker of salt to get any flavor from the oysters. Plus, there are some exciting developments in the oyster industry that you might want to share with fellow members.


Address of the Piankatank Community League is 11888 Harcum Road, Gloucester, VA. The party will start at 1pm and end about 4. So, mark your calendar now to attend this terrific party.


Please RSVP to Terry Lewis no later than May 4 so he has time to acquire appropriate supplies. His email is or call 804-693-2687. As in the past we'll have some of the best fried oysters in the whole Mid-Atlantic Region and other delicious treats.


Thanks for volunteering! This is TOGA’s way of expressing appreciation to its many volunteers who make this such a successful organization.
