Dorchester Day Parade - Meatloaf Dinner at Parish Church - Mar 24, 2011

Posted: March 24, 2011     Nancy J Conrad

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.

The 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 Day Parade 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 good. 

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 accordingly. 

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.
