Title Time Description
(No subject) 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Join the Friends of Smith Neck Meeting under the tent for an old Fashioned New England Clambake beginning with homemade chowder on Saturday August 9. Beginning at 1:30 pm the Clambake is a tradition at Smith Neck Meeting that has continued for three decades. Volunteers start an enormous fire of wood and rocks about 8:30 in the morning. Other members grind quahogs for the chowder, make the stuffing and place fresh fish into bags. Volunteers from Smith Neck wash the clams tenderly and then everything is bagged together, placed in wooden crates, and baked over the fire. Come early and see the steam billowing out from underneath the wet tarps as the rockweed crackles on red-hot rocks. This is not just a feast of clams with all the trimmings; it is a dinning event. The chowder and brown bread are served first. Ways and Means sponsors a bake sale and Friends will have for sale two Cats Meow collector’s items illustrating Apponegansett Meeting House and Smith Neck Meeting House. Clambake tickets are $45 for adults and $22 for children under 12. For reservations, call Anne Lopoulos at 508-994-5816. The event is handicapped accessible. Smith Neck Friends Meeting is located at 594 Smith Neck Road at the corner of Rock O Dundee Road, Dartmouth.
