Local Lions invent new lobster cooker

The Lions Clubs of Lakefield have been holding a very popular fundraiser and community get-together each June for the past seven years. They have been serving up lobster dinners to approximately five hundred people every June.
For the past number of years, the Lions’ lobster chefs have been trying to figure out a way to ensure that all lobsters are boiled at the right temperature and for the proper time with the least amount of man hours. Two Lions have been working on the problem.
Then, at the Lakefield Lions’ meeting on April 20, a newly designed lobster steamer, built by John Dunford and George Payton was unveiled. The steamers are designed by a local Lakefield resident and the burner units came from California.
The new steamers will be showcased at this year’s LobsterFest in June.
