Franklin Rotary Pasta Supper Returns!

Rotary is so happy to have been able to bring this service project back this year, on June 22nd, with Master Chef Dan Gentile taking the lead. 
It takes many hands and hours of preparation, starting several days in advance of the event. We began the process of making homemade tomato sauce and hand rolling meatballs by 10 a.m. and once every pot and pan is cleaned, we finished just about 6:30-7 p.m. that night.
Many thanks to the Franklin Housing Authority, who allows us the use of their function hall, where we served approximately 60 of Franklin’s Senior Citizens and Franklin Housing residents, a home cooked meal. It’s a lot of work, but we are paid back with hugs and smiles and lots of heartfelt thank-you’s.
“I’m grateful to the Rotary Club Members and volunteers who helped us to pull off this event. Next, we will be looking forward to doing this again at our Rotary Valentines Day Brunch in February.” said Chef Dan. 
“I’m sure my Dad was smiling down on us from heaven that entire day, watching us continue what he started 30 years ago.”
