CLAM POWER!.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 24 @2:00 pm - 3:30 pm. FREE AND OPEN TO ALL.

Clam Power! Steve Kuhn Steve has been clamming for forty years right here on the Great South Bay. It was while Steve was attending North Carolina State University as a design major when the idea for a Clam Power shirt was first created. Every summer Steve would return home and clam to put himself through college. As a way to pay respect to the bay and to capture the turbulent times in the early sixties and seventies Steve came up with the Clam Power T-shirt. The T-shirt became a success among local clammers and eventually for many people on Long Island. https://www.clampower.org/
