It’s time to mark your calendar and secure your ticket to one of the summer’s most popular events, the Lloyd Center for the Environment’s CLAMBAKE XXXII, Celebrating Science and Education!”
Festivities will begin at 6 o’clock on the evening of Friday, July 14, by the side of the sea at Demarest Lloyd State Park in Dartmouth. Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. With a limited number of seats available, advance reservations are an absolute must.
Those who have attended this event in the past, know it to be the unofficial “kick-off” of the South Coast’s summer season, with its glorious sea-side setting. This year, to shake things up a bit, the event will feature a new menu including raw bar, lobster rolls, chowder, assorted sliders and more. There will be a top-shelf open bar, extraordinary silent auction and “You Should be Dancing” to the music of the 70’s theme! Disco-themed dress is encouraged.
Kelly Contois Rebello will once again chair this year’s event. Kelly is a full-time real estate agent, well known throughout the South Coast region and the co-owner of Hearth Heating, a family business. Originally from Fairhaven, she resides in Dartmouth with her husband, Skott, and their two daughters. Kelly holds an outstanding record in organizing fundraisers for local causes.
Kelly is enthusiastic about the opportunity to move the event, already a classic in its own right, forward with a dedicated group of experienced volunteers, assisted by members of the Lloyd Center’s staff and board of directors. Members of Clambake XXXII’s Steering Committee are Kelly Contois Rebello, Chair; Gregory Clear, Sandra T. Hall, Linda Hamilton, Susanna Jacobus, Anne Louro, Peter L. Macdonald, Suzanne Means, and Alex Preston.
A tradition upon which so much depends, the Clambake helps to underwrite the costs of the Lloyd Center’s critically important environmental research and education programs.
Today, the Lloyd Center is working hard to protect the nature of our beautiful coast and to bring first-rate environmental science classes to thousands of deserving children in our area’s public schools. The Lloyd Center is truly giving back to children that vital connection to nature, which for so many had been lost.
Anyone wishing to receive a “patronage” invitation should call 508-990-0505 x10, as soon as possible, as the event traditionally sells-out. Click Here to buy your reservations online.
