A Family Passion
For Kim and Ray Kenna, fresh Maine lobster is more than a hobby. It’s a passion that’s been handed down for generations, and that continues to excite each day.
Although they’ve lived in the DC area for almost thirty years, the owners of Lobster Maine-ia are no strangers to New England culture and cuisine. In fact, both Kim and Ray boast deep family connections to Maine, and to the food that makes it famous.
Kim’s grandparents were born in Canada, and moved to Auburn, Maine in the early 1900s. Every summer since the late 1930s, Kim’s mother and grandparents vacationed at Sebago Lake. Even after her mother moved away, the family tradition at Sebago continued—along with the loads of fresh lobster they’d come to love! Of course, when Kim married Ray, he was a natural addition to the family. Having spent his college years in New Hampshire, and with his own family connections to Maine, Ray was eager to continue with his wife the tradition of summers at Sebago Lake. Naturally, lots of lobster was involved!
Sharing the Lobster Love
Like any good thing, lobster is best when shared with others. In 1989, Kim and Ray started a new tradition, returning back to the DC area with twenty lobsters and plans for a first annual “lobster feast.” Over the years the feast grew, and the love quickly spread. Today, the Kenna lobster feast is a summer highlight—and friends and family work hard not to miss it!
Kim and Ray soon realized that people were fawning over the fresh Maine lobster. No matter where else they ordered it, the sweet taste and soft texture was missing. It just wasn’t the same.
Soon, the couple was taking orders for their summer trip to Sebago Lake. But no matter how hard they tried, they simply couldn’t keep up!
