Good eats, good cause at Port Arthur Seafarer's Center
Supporters and volunteers of the Port Arthur
International Seafarers’ Center are doing good works and eating well in the
Tom Broussard and Capt. and Mrs. Wesley and
Stephanie Moore presented a gathering for special supporters that included a
jazz ensemble and nibbles.
Chef Carly Andrews of Chic Chef Catering
laid out a spread with chicken and goat cheese stuffed dates with crispy hot
mustard chicken skin garnish as just one offering. My favorite thing on the
tower of goodies was creamy crawfish dip with pistolette bread crostinis.
But the complex at the end of Procter Street
features a meeting room, pool table and more where ship crew members get
company and support. There’s good food getting served there all the time.
Lorraine Blanchard does some cooking for the
frequent lunch benefits that Janet Vestel says are offer bang for the buck.
“I try very hard to put out a decent meal on
the table,” Blanchard said. “And I’m kind of famous for my bread pudding.”
Vestel supports the claim.
“You need to come. You’d freak out over her
bread pudding,” Vestel said.
Tammy Domingue works at the center and says
anyone interested in volunteering could find themselves driving a sailor to
anything from a church service to the shopping center.
For more information on how to volunteer, or
buy a lunch to support the center, call Domingue at 409-982-4504.
