2017 Fall Open House

OTS students created the ghoulish centerpiece for the open house.

Ocean Tides Annual Fall Open House and Reception was held Friday October 20th, 2017 hosted here at the school and Christian Brothers Center, Narragansett, RI.

In addition to carving stations, hors d’oeuvres were prepared and served by Culinary Arts students, showcasing some of the skills they are learning in the OTS program. Guests had the opportunity to win various raffles and door prizes, including holiday wreaths made by our Horticulture students.
Thanks to staff and faculty who supported students to make the event a success, and to all of our many guests who  joined us for the fall festivities.
We look forward to seeing you and Ocean Tides’ Hall of Fame Dinner, Memorial Day weekend, 2018!
