|Ed Geary, Jr. is the author and webmaster for the
Dorchester Day Parade Committee. He tells us that around 200
people attended the kick-off meatloaf dinner.
And who did the catering? Gerard's Restaurant in Lower Mills, of course. They have been
catering the event for as long as anyone can remember.
meatloaf dinner is the first event of the Dorchester Day activities
designed to pull the crowd together and get them excited about the
upcoming parade. "It's to
celebrate Dorchester," he said "and to promote the upcoming Dorchester
Committee events. Everybody had a great time and the food was
nutritious and delicious (even the carrots)."
|So what was great about the evening?
Excitement, camaraderie, hunger, old friends. Not a sad face in
the crowd. Even the long lines were fun to wait in and by the
time you got to the food (catered, of course), it already tasted
Gerard's did a terrific job of presenting the healthy and delicious
food, filling the plates and smiling all the while. This was a
relatively formal sit-down affair and everyone was dressed
First Parish Church provided the perfect space for a comfortable community dinner.
Excellent kick-off event for the Dorchester Day Parade on June 5, 2011.
