Tickets available now for Rotary’s 51st Salmon Bake

SEQUIM — The Rotary Club of Sequim’s annual Salmon Bake will return for the 51st consecutive year.

The longtime tradition will be at the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula at 400 W. Fir St. on Aug. 11.

The meal and music will be offered from noon to 4 p.m. with a raffle item table available along with community vendors, pies and nonprofit displays.

The Dukes of Dabob will perform Dixieland and the Cat’s Meow will entertain with Great American favorites.

Visitors will be able to choose between a salmon meal cooked over an open alder fire by a number of Sequim Sunrise Rotarians or a pulled pork sandwich meal. Children 12 and younger may purchase a hot dog meal at the door for $5 as an alternative.

Discount tickets can be purchased for $16 up to the day before the event from Rotary Club of Sequim (noon) Rotarians, at the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce Office, the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs, the YMCA, Thomas Building Center, Beal Carpet and Drapery, online at facebook.com/sequimnoonrotary or by calling 360-775-5820.

Tickets the day of the event will cost $18.

Proceeds will benefit the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs, Sequim youth activities, local charities, such Rotary service projects as the Adaptive Bike Program, and teacher classroom scholarships.

Internationally, the Rotary Club has partnered with other Rotary clubs to provide clean water for school children in the Philippines, clean water and sanitation for several villages in Guatemala and assisted disaster victims worldwide through Shelterbox. Members support Rotary’s Polio Plus Program to eliminate Polio in every country on earth.

Organizers encourage visitors to be aware of ongoing construction on Fir Street and to enter the parking lot from Fourth Avenue.
