P'mouth Town Clambake- Sun., Sept. 7

An old-fashioned clambake for $30- what a buy! Not to mention a lot of work for the bakers. If you've never actually seen an actual bake, here's your opportunity! All the locals will attend, plus more than a few state/federal officials. You'll dine in style at picnic tables, so dress is casual. Plenty of area for kids to run around. It makes me yearn for the days when the local Middletown Dem group would hold a steak fry at Kempenar's. Oh, well... Be there or be square!

The Portsmouth Democratic Town Committee is holding their annual clambake on Sunday, September 7, 2008. The event will be held on the grounds of the Portsmouth Portuguese American Citizens Club at 35 Power St., which is across East Main Rd from St. Anthony's Church.

Open to the public, this popular event begins with “all you can eat” homemade chowder and clam cakes at 1 PM. At the same time, diners can also take advantage of great bargains and enjoy the fun during the auction sponsored by the Democratic Women’s Club.

The traditional New England Clambake of fresh clams, fish, chourico, sausage, hot dogs, sweet potato, onion, potato and corn on the cob is served fresh off the fire at 3 PM. Tickets for the day are $30 for adults, (tickets at the door may be limited), and $7 for children under 12 and are available at the PA Club, Allen’s Wine and Spirits, Ferreira’s Package Store or by calling Chuck Levesque at 847-2510. Proceeds from the event go to the Portsmouth Democratic Town Committee.
