The annual Taylor’s Island Kettle Clambake took place on Saturday, Aug. 10 on Taylor’s Island. Shuttle boats gathered guests at Congdon’s Dock while others arrived by kayak. The feast featured lobster, clams, chicken, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, watermelon and fresh homemade lemonade. Only 100 tickets were available.
