The Stratford Rotary Club served up Rib Night this evening at Vazzano’s Four Seasons in Stratford. Stratford Rotary has been running their Rib Night for about 7 years and by all accounts this one was the biggest and the best yet as the Club changed the venue, the food and the format of the event.
There were about 120 attendees that enjoyed the food provided by Johnny’s Restaurant with Angelo’s famous ribs as well as entertainment by “the smooth voice” of Richard Cookie Thomas. The fellowship was lively and was complimented by a fair amount of friendly bidding on the silent auction items.
The event featured a silent auction, raffle prizes and a special Sports Memorabilia auction. All proceeds will benefit the club’s Dictionary/Thesaurus Project, whereby every third grader gets a dictionary and every fifth grader gets a thesaurus in all Stratford schools, public and parochial.
