BARS Clamming Class for Riverview School

Riverview School students and BARS members

BARS, in conjunction with the Riverview School, held a clamming class for special needs children. The class took place on August 3rd and was an inspiring time for both the children and the BARS volunteers. For some of these kids, all of high school age, this was a once in a lifetime experience. Students from Riverview School come from all over the United States as well as other countries. This event was carried out with the help of Lynne Poyant and Doug Kalweit of the Town of Barnstable. It is hoped this event will be a yearly collaboration between Riverview School, the Town of Barnstable, and BARS.
