 The tasting will offer the perfect opportunity to learn about native oysters reintroduced into the Chesapeake Bay by Ryan and Travis Croxton, owners of Rappahannock River Oysters, and to visit Merrior, according to Peg Davis, vice chairman of the Jacob’s Ladder board of directors. 

 The cost of $60 includes the oysters, beer, wine, chowder, condiments and nonalcoholic beverages. For tickets, call 758-0712 by September 24.

 Jacob’s Ladder is a program for at-risk, gifted children in Virginia and North Carolina, in grades 4-8, who can benefit from a proactive enrichment program that helps them to reach their full potential. 

The goal is to foster the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of these children, to provide support and information to the family unit, and to offer guidance in planning for advanced education.

 Many students from the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck are in the program, said Davis.
