Clam bake

Brighton, MA

#1 Apr 22, 2014
Just a FYI... Advertised clam bake is drill team event where money goes to support the behavior of the crazy family. Our community boycott is working! Our community has clearly mad a impression. To the drill team...you want people's money? Little to late! Our village wants summer recreation for kids. Our money can be spent on better things for our community.

Good job Copenhagen! Keep it up!

Our group bought our tickets for the clam bake. All you can eat from noon to 6 pm. We really didn't need to hear you bitch all afternoon about how much we ate. From the size of the crowd, there was plenty of food, including clams.

Maybe next year you could take the day off so we don't have to listen to your comments every time one of go back for more. To bad you ruined a great event for our group.

Your right, there was plenty of clams, there's a whole bunch left over they can't get rid of. Would be a shame if the cooler were to die on them and spoil the clams like it conveniently does after every dept. Event. Strange how that always happens and certine people are always the same ones to empty out the "spoiled" food.

I hear Jim was mad at Shane and Shawn because they decided to go to the windmill rescue drill instead of helping him. The village and dept. Are cracking down on training so they go do it, and get chewed out for it. He always argues firemen first to defend the team, so what part of training requirements doesn't he understand?

Here we go again!! And it would all die down and stop if people like the kitchen lady would learn to keep her comments to herself or at least wait until she got home and talked crap with just her husband around. Now who are they going to blame for another failed money making event?
Ironic

The ironic thing the group she was complaining about is related to the guy named Frank who actually posted positive comments on another thread a few weeks ago.

It just amazes many of us that she has so much say. Way to go drive away a few more supporters..
We went

Myself and a few friends went. To be honest personally thought why not support a group of volunteers especially when they get bashed on a site like this. But..

Our first batch of clams was really cold. After that cooked and served at right temp and thought were amazing until the someone was over heard mentioning that the clams weren't rinsed. My
Parents cooked clams as a family tradition and my dad always said to rinse and avoid bacteria. Kinda grossed me so I stopped on the clams.

They had plenty of other food from chicken strips, fried and salads. Chowder was ok.

I missed the salt potatoes. I Like the north country tradition of salt potatoes.

And yes we heard one of the volunteers crabbing about people eating clams. Not sure why someone didn't tell her to zip it? So to sum it up, all these posts from the past have some truth to them. I was a paying guest and didn't feel very welcome. But for the clam bake lovers out there, bye bye copenhagen, Pamela fire dept does it up right! See ya there!

IF you didn't like what happened go to the persons who you have complaints about instead of on here. The event was a success and its time to move Apparently some one there is telling stories again. If it is a firefighters you have been warned to stay off of this.

This sounds to me like general public that attended the event is commenting. It also sounds to me like they were well informed. There is one member who commented about training, but our great constitution, which takes precedence over the wishes of the Copenhagen Fire Dept, affords each of us the right of Freedom of Speech. It evens gives it to you!

As far as going to the person, what a joke!

As a viewer of this site it seems hat most wish to bash the fire department in your community. It is true we have free speech, but this is not the place to express your views, go to the officers or chairmen of the event if you have problems. The fire department and drill tem members who are members of the department are in your community for one purpose to assist in making everyone safe and in a time of need. Its time to appreciate that you have them especially in a time when membership in departments is small and mutual aid is needed.

It's not the place because you say it's not the place? We can complain to anyone we damn well feel like complaining too. You're people made my family feel very unwelcome to event we PAID to attend.

What good would it have done to go to any officer? Complaints are made often and very little is done.

If members of this dept were told not to comment on this board, why are you? You're either a member or someone who is very close to one.

i have attendeda clam bake for other dept. and organizations. when it is all you can eat and food is not ready to be served ..t here are people eating who are greedy to other guests.you paid to get your fill but when people working a clam bake cant keep up with how much your eating and other people dont have an oportunity to ccome back as often than your being rude. maybe this is the reason why said comments were made at this function ? it should be common sense in the same way as if you got to a buffet for dinner. some dept will speak up and confront guests when this is a problem but if you had been confronted would you not have come to this site and bashed the dept for that too? as far as the clams being rinsed you would knowif they werent, full of grits and sand

also complaints should be made tho those working the function or officer.same as with any dept or oganization fundraiser, there is a post every other week aboutthis dept and people say each time go to the dept or people in person to confront problems. complaints are obviously not being made in person bc its straight to this site to bitch and moan, yet people say that little is done and there is no good in going to an officer. what do you expect volunteers or the dept to do if you hide behind the computer screen like a gossipgroup grather than going to talk to someone. how can you know nothing will be done if you arent giving the dept a chance to handle hese complaints

Agree with clam bake sorry to chfd sucks but you had the choice to attend the function or not and did. Also whether you think I a member or close to one if not for me to say. Please remember observers can observe and not be either.

I was at the clam bake and found everything in order, while I don't eat clams I was with someone who did and they were very satisfied and appreciated the special attention given to them, They said everyone was friendly and appreciated the help from the women working in the kitchen. Apparently some on this page didn't appreciate how they were treated.

People are already looking forward to the field day and clams and chowder there. Also talked to some one from out of town who couldn't attend and can't wait until July for the clams and chowder.

Let me get this straight...you are justifying bashing a local family for eating to much at a all you can eat clambake because staff couldn't keep up with a steamer? A drill team member bashed A family that attends fire dept functions, are non bias and in the past defended the dept against rumors and or gossip?

To be honest I don't know why we are all surprised...this person doesn't have anything good to say about anyone. She gossips and puts down someone all the time. People within the dept think that they have been exempt from her vicious attacks, I doubt anyone has.

Must be a sad depressing life to constantly attack good people to make yourself feel better. I actually feel sad for her that she has so little self esteem. So insecure...

A lot of people post from Carthage may not be the same person, but multiple persons. You're not fooling me and stopping me to post . How do you know if the same person posts under different names. The system assigned the community for me on mine.
