Letter: Pasta dinner planned for ailing school board member

To the Editor:

Our friend and colleague, John DeRosa, is battling for his return to good health. As many of us are all too well aware, this fight will take an emotional and financial toll on John and his family. “For any of us who have seen John campaign (and win) or witnessed the passion he brings to his public service roll on the Board of Education, we know he is bringing that same fighting spirit and passion to this challenge,” said Paul Beckwith, Republican Town Committee Chairman.

To show our support for the DeRosa family, the Friends of John DeRosa are hosting a Pasta Dinner fundraiser at the Foran High School cafeteria on Wednesday, December 2nd from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person, $20 per family(up to 5), payable at the door. Dinner includes a variety of pastas from Lasse’s Restaurant, meatballs, sausage, salad, rolls, beverages and a dessert table.

“John is one our community builders and is passionate about Milford,” stated Kathy Kennedy, event coordinator. “It is our honor to give back to this good family.”

Please reach out to your friends, families and colleagues and join us in supporting John and his family.

If you would like to volunteer to help with set-up, service or clean-up, please contact Kathy Kennedy 203-530-3322 or Paula Smith 203-988-1087.

Thank you from the Friends of John DeRosa committee,

Kathy Kennedy, Paul Beckwith, Suzanne Dibiase, John O’Connell, Paula Smith
