TOYS FOR TOTS EVENT COLLECTS TRUCKLOADS OF TOYS: The Capozzoli family had their Annual Toys for Tots Event Friday, December 14, at The Village Pub, 1272 Washington Street on Rt. 138. They collected a couple of truckloads of unwrapped, non-violent toys that will be heading to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program.
The Capozzoli's made it a real special occasion, as they always do! They served an amazing home-cooked buffet, featuring turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, ham, gravy, meatballs, salad, and two varieties of wings. There were also raffle prizes for their guests, to generate funds for even more toys for Toys for Tots.
Jerry, Pauline, Nicole and their family and friends buy all the food, and serve it all. Three Marines attended the event for Toys for Tots, including Gunner Sgt. Jack Kinsherf, Sgt. Bob Mansfield, and Sgt. Ryan Moffett.
As always, it was a fun time for all.
Take a look at photos from the event in the gallery.
