Seekonk Lions Clam Boils Return and Fishing Derby on the Horizon


If you are a long time boiler or someone who wants to sow in luscious clams soaked in butter and savory spices, the Seekonk Lions Club next Clam Boil will be held at the Seekonk Rod & Gun Club 61 Reed St. Rehoboth Thursday March 26th at 7pm. It’s been a few long months and the winter weather could not have been better. Our first clam boil of the season starts with steamers cooked in hot spicy broth! We start off with Sausage, Hot Dogs, Chorizo, onions; potatoes. Then we add Italian bread and melted butter. Then Da Clams!!! And don’t forget about that Ice Cream sandwich to keep your palette clean!

Come down and be a part of the largest boils in the area! The Clam Boils are the Seekonk Lions major fundraising activity. The cost for a ticket to the clam boil is $30. Proceeds go towards funding community projects and Massachusetts Eye Research. Seating is limited and reservations are required. For ticket information please contact Bob Read at 401 965-2749 or David Pitassi at 401 474-1052. Tickets will go fast!

Other Lion news, the Lions held their last meeting February 10, 202 at the Grist Mill Restaurant. Attorney Edward Grouke of the Pawtucket firm Finan and Grouke, gave a brief presentation on legal issues to the members in attendance. After eating a menu tailored for the membership, “Ted” discussed the services he provides and answered questions on the minds of some of the Lion members. Most of the discussion dealt with Probate, Trusts and Estates, Estate Planning and Wills. Ted explained that your goals and needs drive what type of services are warranted. If you are looking for these and other skills including commercial litigation, trial practice, personal injury visit Ted at Finan and Grouke 24 Spring St, Pawtucket, RI 02860

Also on the horizon for the Seekonk Lions is the Eighth Annual Doug Allan Fishing Tournament. This year to be held on Patriots Day Monday, April 20, 2020 at the Old Grist Mill Pond RT 114A in Seekonk 9:00am till 11:00am. Open for all children through high school in the area. The Massachusetts Division of Wildlife will begin stocking the Old Grist Mill Pond with trout during the coming weeks.

We would like to see all our fellow anglers back this year with some new eager fishing enthusiasts. George “the fishing guy” will be back running this annual event. Prizes for everyone, special guests and the best derby dinner and banquet in the area! No cost at all. If you are interested in participating or would like to donate to this great event, contact seekonkfishingtournament@yahoo.com and George will reply.
