The Dinner Dance was an overwhelming success. A fall decorating theme made the dining room at Cohasse Country Club sparkle. Hors d’oeuvres were plentiful and the meal with three choices on the buffet was excellent. Dancing was lively with lots of guests mingling and truly having fun. Raffle baskets and a 50/50 raffle were offered. The highlight of the evening was the check presentation to the Rev. Kenneth Cardinale, the new pastor at the Saint John Paul II Parish who oversees the Saint John Paul II Food Pantry. Rev. Cardinale spoke about the ever increasing need for food at the Pantry. The numbers of families fed each month from Southbridge and Sturbridge have grown dramatically and our check for $3,000 will certainly help to stock the Pantry shelves. This year was the 4th Annual Dinner Dance with proceeds to benefit the Panty. We are proud to say that to date, we have contributed over $12,000 toward this worthy cause.
