North End Against Drugs packed the Nazzaro Center for its Family Dinner/Family Talk event on November 18th. In addition to a great dinner, long time NEAD participant Korey McIsaac gave an inspiring talk as the guest speaker. Born and brought up in the North End Korey grew up with NEAD. As a teenager he volunteered with NEAD, participated in plays with NEMPAC and now as a fine young adult he works with the Red Sox, produces his own plays and short films and still acts in NEMPAC plays and much, much more!. Korey has never forgotten his roots in the neighborhood and continues to help out with NEAD and NEMPAC. In addition to the dinner event, NEW Health was on hand to collect gloves and hats for the St. Francis Homeless Shelter. The event is sponsored by a grant from the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority. (Photos by Phil Orlandella.)
