Chowder Day & Reunion

Join us for our annual family homecoming and alumni reunion. A full day of athletic events, family fun, and delicious New England chowder make this a "don't miss this" kind of day!

This community-wide event began in the 1944 and has been a much anticipated annual tradition ever since. Parents, grandparents, students, siblings, alumni, alumni parents, and friends come together to cheer on the PCD Knights in athletic contests throughout the day, enjoy chowder and clam cakes, and chat with old friends and new. The day promises terrific competition, amazing chowder and lots of fun. Everyone is welcome—the more the merrier!

Chowder Day History

Deep in the archives we found this gem of a story. It chronicles the origin of Chowder Day, which dates back to the early '40s. It seems to have been a class assignment, which we think deserves an A.
