Help rebuild the historic Crab Pot

The historic Crab Pot fish market in Lincoln City burned to the ground July 3, 2014, after operating almost continuously since 1922. Owner and operator Allen Black recently announced he has launched a GoFundMe campaign to rebuild the business.

“To say the least, 2014 was a tough year for me,” Black says on his GoFundMe page. “It is hard for me to focus on the nuts and bolts of what has to be done to rebuild the market and my home. Even with all that has happened, it is difficult for me to ask for help. Probably the way I was brought up. But without help, there simply isn’t enough money to rebuild. More than one friend has pointed out to me that if every customer who has stopped at my fish market in the nearly 40 years I owned it each gave one dollar, I’d probably have enough to rebuild.”

To learn more about Black’s plans and to support the GoFundMe campaign visit gofundme.com/u3ba6w or call Black at 541-994-7883.
