North End Against Drugs Dinner / Talk Supports Homeless Shelter

Steven Siciliano, Chief Probation Officer at South Boston District Court who will officially start his new role as Nazzaro Community Center Director November 13th was the guest speaker at the October 15 North End Against Drugs (NEAD) Family Dinner / Talk event held at the Center.

This dinner was open to all North End / Waterfront residents, anyone registered in the North End Athletic Association (NEAA) or the Nazzaro Center programs, along with parents and grandparents.

Winter hats, clouds and white basketball socks were collected for Saint Francis Homeless Shelter, and a raffle was held to support the shelter.

NEAD President John Romano noted that other similar events will be held in the near future.

“The dinner / talk events are a great way to provide information relating to drug and alcohol use and the dangers that go with these issues,” Romano said.

Every seat in the Center was filled with children and their parents who enjoyed a great meal and Siciliano’s interesting discussion.
