As there is no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than eating lobster or steak on the waterfront while listening to great blues music, except to do that and benefit Habitat for Humanity of Waldo County, there will be a Lobster Gala Sunday, Aug. 21, from noon to 3 p.m. at Steamboat Landing, at the foot of  Commercial Street.

Volunteers will be cooking and serving lobster (or steak), clams, corn on the cob, chips and homemade pies. Local bluesmakers the Juke Rockets, featuring Carlene Thornton, Bob Strusz, Steve Mellor and Tim Woitowitz, will provide the music.

Tickets are $25 and can be reserved by calling 338-2344; or purchased from any Habitat board member or by stopping by the Mailloux and Marden Law Offices on High Street. Proceeds will help Habitat for Humanity of Waldo County build its second home, in Searsport.
