Boat Race Ham & Bean Supper is May 27

May 19, 2017

Rochester — The Rochester Memorial Day Boat Race (RMDBR) Ham and Bean Supper will be held Saturday May 27 at the Rochester Memorial School, 16 Pine Street in Rochester. The supper will be served from 5 - 7 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at the door. Adult prices are $10.00.  Tickets for children under twelve are $5.00.

The dinner will include beans baked by the best bean bakers in town, coleslaw and potato salad prepared by the Culinary Arts Department at Old Colony Vocational Tech HS, rolls and brown bread. To top it all off, apple crisp, prepared by the Artisan Bake Shop, will be served as dessert.

Proceeds from the supper help offset the expenses of the race.

This year there will also be a special raffle drawn at the supper. William Watling III, has custom made and donated two carbon fiber river racing paddles designed specifically for the Memorial Day Boat Race.

There will be two separate drawings, one for each paddle. You may choose which drawing you would like your ticket entered in. You do not have to present to win. All proceeds go to the Rochester Firefighters Association to support the race.

This is the 83rd anniversary of the race and it remains one of the few racing events with no entry fees - as it was in 1934 when it was started. Enjoy a great meal at one of the important social events of the year in our area. As they say, the more the merrier!

Parking is at the rear of the school - enter at the rear door. For additional information please contact Arthur Benner, Chairman, RMDBR, 508-763- 2024.
