On Oct. 17 the Chamber is hosting its annual Seafood Supper at the Greenville-Butler County Public Library’s Camellia Pavilion.

The event will feature live entertainment by local musicians Caleb Luckie and Cade Tillery.

“We’re going to have a wonderful time,” Wasden said. “It’s a chance for everyone to get together for good food and entertainment.”

The event is being catered by Wintzell’s Oyster House, a Mobile-based eatery that is opening a restaurant in Greenville.

Wintzell’s, which was founded in 1938 by J. Oliver Wintzell, has 12 locations throughout Alabama and Florida. The eatery is know for fresh Gulf seafood, and was named in Willard Scott’s All-American Cookbook for the best oysters and crabs.

According to Wasden, the menu will include fried fish, shrimp, chicken, grits, red beans and rice, potatoes, coleslaw and bread pudding.

Wasden says the event is about networking and socializing with one another.

“It’s a chance for our community to come together and visit with friends and business partners,” she said.

“We encourage all Chamber of Commerce members to invite their friends, family members, and business colleagues to the event.”

Tickets are $25 per person and no one under the age of 21 will be allowed to attend.

Tickets also must be purchased by Oct. 14.

Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce or from any Chamber board member.

The Seafood Supper is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. The event will also feature door prizes donated by local businesses.

“We’re still collecting door prizes, so if there are businesses out there that would like to be a part of this event by donating one, they can contact the Chamber and we’ll come by and pick it up,” Wasden said.
