The Augusta Boucherie is honored that the Savannah Riverkeeper has come onboard as an event sponsor. In doing so, they will host Friday evening’s Oyster Roast, coordinated by Team Leader Tom Wiedmeier. Tom has led the Riverkeeper’s annual “Roast on the River” for six years, an event that draws a huge community of river-loving citizens together for oysters and lowcountry boil. Tom says that leading the Oyster Roast with his teammates is a good way for him to support the ongoing work of SRK. “It represents that natural tie between water and food.” He also dabbles in bbq competitions, here and there.
When Tom is not roasting oysters, he’s the Director of Augusta Utilities, overseeing the care of our city’s water and waste water systems.
