Clambake-on-the-Lake to benefit Village Project

There is no doubt about it – fall in northeast Ohio is clambake season. Local lore has it that our love of a traditional clambake stems from this region’s historical link to New England and our beachy location on Lake Erie. In any case, as the air pleasantly cools, as football, cheerleaders and marching bands rule the stadiums, and as the leaves turn shades of red, yellow, orange and purple, northeast Ohioans naturally hunger to enjoy these beautiful days of autumn near the water with friends … and a big pot of steaming clams.

The Village Project invites you to join in the fun of their first Clambake-on-the-Lake on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 5 to 9 p.m. in Bay Village. The evening will be graciously hosted at the home of Bill and Lisa Priemer, who are steadfast supporters of VP.

Besides beautiful views of Lake Erie and welcome fellowship, each clambake guest will enjoy one dozen middleneck clams, a seasoned half-chicken, sweet corn, sweet potato, cole slaw, dinner roll, beer and wine.

Tickets are $75 each and must be ordered by Oct. 8. They may be ordered online at This is a limited event – only 100 tickets will be sold.

All proceeds from this event benefit Village Project. The need for VP services is greater than ever. Clambake guest participation will help Village Project create a healthier, more connected community while providing nourishing meals and extended care to those battling cancer.

The Clambake-on-the-Lake also will be the location for the raffle drawing of the winner of a Village Project cooking class for up to eight people. The lucky winning group will learn to cook a delicious, healthy meal in the organization’s newly expanded kitchen and then enjoy their culinary creations in VP’s brand new dining room. Raffle tickets are one for $20 or three for $50 and are available on the website as well as at the clambake. The winner does not need to be present to win.

If you have questions, please call 440-348-9401.
