PASTA NIGHT IN
transformed into Cuccina Italiano
ugly storm precluded the traditional pre-pasta night party of “the boys” sipping
and sampling Lou Romanzi’s sauces, leaving just Dawn
and Lauren alone doing floral arrangements. And the annual Entenmann’s Run in Bayshore, October 2, prevented any from getting to the
9:30AM ferry the morning of the party.
the scheduledl Fire Department meeting was well
attended and soon morphed into a group effort as members of the department
performed the ritual emptying of trucks and setting up of tables. Despite such a dire beginning the next day was
picture perfect and spirits were high as “Lou’s Party” sprang to life.
The Pasta was Barilla Penne, Lou R made
a Pomodoro and a meat sauce.
The kitchen line was Warren,
“the voice of experience” as Lou generously referred to him, Dominick cooking
pasta, Lou did the sauce, Gary
did the meat and Dawn took the orders.
FD members cleaned out the bays and set
up the table, big help from Rudy G and Rusty and Charlie U Decorations were Krysha Lambie, Emmy Ryan a great
help in with set up and salad bar, as well as Barbara and Lauren, preparing the cheese and pepperoni.
Patty R seemed to be everywhere and did a little bit of everything. J&J Mac
set up bar, coffee and deserts. Modern Bakery in Islip donated the bread free of charge. The Chiros worked the door,
I found my “calling” working the dock handing out flyers provided by
Patti to all sorts of attractive people
Approximately 110 dinners were served.
This event is truly a community event,
not a fundraiser, and a good time was
had by all, especially Andy Whitney...he won $565.00!!
