After partnering with the Kiwanis Club of the Northern Neck for two years, the Boys & Girls Club officially took over the booth this year, reported executive director Philip Mumford. The Great Wicomico Oyster Company kept them in oysters, he said. While roasted oysters proved the most popular item on the menu, the oyster tacos received good reviews. Photo by Robert Mason Jr
