Dinner time

***The Salesian Boys & Girls Club is holding a spaghetti dinner fundraiser tonight in the cafeteria of its current location, the old Savio Hall. The proceeds will help sustain the club's programming for young people from East Boston.

***State rep. Carlo Basile is again sponsoring a Thanksgiving Day dinner at the Sacred Heart Church. Transportation can be arranged by calling 617.913.3332. This community has a long tradition of such events, which speaks to the notion that we are each responsible for helping out our neighbors when we can.

Carlo and his family deserve a big thanks for putting so much time and effort every year to make this event the huge success that it has become.
Keep up the great work Carlo,and I will see you there early to help out in any way I can.

I heard Carlo Basile cooks all the cranberry sauce himself.
His secret ingredient; a splash of Earl Gray tea.

You absolutely should consult your local newspaper for news stories. That is not the purpose of this blog.
