 Ticket Price:  $40.00 in advance only


Because this event has become so popular, we want to make sure more of the active membership has a chance to attend with a guest.  Therefore, our ticket sales have changed so please read the "Frequently Asked Questions" section below. 


This is an ADULT only, outside, all-weather event, so come prepared!

 

The menu for the day includes: Oysters, Shrimp, Crab Cakes, Fish Filet, Clam Chowder, Scallops, BBQ, Coleslaw, and more.

 

In order to reduce the congestion in the parking lot, please consider carpooling with friends. Whatever you do, make sure you bring a big appetite! Absolutely NO TAKE-OUT available. All food and drink are to be enjoyed at the event.

 

There will be a Canned Food Drive to support the Peninsula Food Bank. Bring your canned or non-perishable goods and receive one raffle ticket for each item or donate $1.00 to receive a raffle ticket for a special door prize.

 

For those who are more inclined to sit and watch all of the festivities, you may bring chairs so that you can relax and socialize with all your Alumni friends.
