Try some of Larry Dunn's famous clam sauce

Italian Night Tradition Continues
By Dave Henley, Chariho Rotary President.

RICHMOND: The Chariho Rotary Club’s annual Italian Night Dinner will be held Tuesday, Nov. 13, at Richmond Country Club, located at 74 Sandy Pond Road in Richmond, with continuous seatings from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.

For this fundraiser the Rotarians take over the kitchen and the dining room, with some members cooking the delicious pasta and meatballs or sausage and some waiting table.

An additional menu choice is Larry’s Famous Linguini and Clam Sauce, developed from an old family recipe by Dr. Larry Dunn of Charlestown.

The event will benefit local charities as well as the annual Rotary Scholarships given to Chariho and Exeter-West Greenwich students.

Tickets to the all-you-can-eat Italian Night cost $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 and are available from any Chariho Rotarian or at the door.

Chariho Rotary raises funds to provide assistance to multiple charitable causes, sponsors blood drives, provides volunteers at the RICAN food pantry, awards some $16,000 each year in scholarships, and most recently provided labor and funds to build the Chariho High School’s new courtyard.

Rotary Club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

The Rotary Club of Chariho is accepting new members. The Club meets Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at Richmond Country Club, 74 Sandy Pond Road in Richmond, and can be reached by calling David Henley at 401-935-9771, by email through the club Website,, or by mail at Rotary Club of Chariho, P.O. Box 543, Hope Valley, RI  02832.
