News from North End Against Drugs (NEAD) President John Romano:
This years’ NEAD Easter Party was the biggest and best ever. With Peter Rabbit (actually Nick the Rabbit) visiting all of the kids at the Nazzaro Center, the party was fantastic. Children of all ages took pictures with the Easter Bunny, colored eggs, made colored drawings and enjoyed a bunch of yummy Easter treats as well as received a free, huge goodie bag! The popular event was sponsored by Michael and Richard Giannasoli in Memory of their Mother Florence who passed away several years ago. After the Easter Bunny hopped onto his next party, the children and their parents (well over 125 in attendance) were treated to a wonderful Puppet Show sponsored by City Councilor Sal Lamattina. The event run by NEAD Board Members and volunteers was also co-sponsored by NSTAR GAS & Electric Company – NEAD’s corporate sponsor.
A special thank you goes out to Mikey Fud for running around and getting all the stuff for the party, also Patricia Romano who boiled all the eggs and the Nazzaro Center for hosting the annual event. Watch the video.
