TriTown Democrats Hosting Gala Dinner May 2nd
FARMINGTON — The TriTown Democrats, representing the Democratic Committees of Farmington, Milton, and New Durham, are hosting their second annual TriTown Honors Dinner on May 2.
The gala event will begin at 6 p.m. on May 2 in the Farmington Recreation Center, 531 Main St.
Last year, the TriTown Democratic Committee decided to host a TriTown Honors Dinner in order to spotlight some of the amazing people who live in the communities. The honorees dedicate their energies and efforts to make the communities better places to live, work, and raise families.
The first honorees of the awards were Ron Chagnon of Farmington and Leo Lessard of Milton. Both men served the communities well by holding local, county and state offices. After the success of that first dinner, the committee decided to make the TriTown Honors Dinner an annual event that would recognize a member of each community for the good work that individual has done to enrich the quality of life in the towns and surrounding communities.
While the TriTown committee represents a loose organization of three Democratic Town Committees, the TriTown Dinner is a non-political event, and the honorees are selected for their philanthropic work and community service, not for their political affiliation.
Everyone is welcome and invited to attend the dinner. The buffet meal will include vegetarian lasagna, baked chicken breast, and roast beef with scalloped potatoes and side vegetable choices. Salad and dessert are included.
The honors for this second annual event will go to three very deserving and well-known community members. The Farmington Committee selected Dottie Bean to receive the second Honors Award for Farmington.
The Milton Committee selected to honor Victor Joos for his contributions and the New Durham Committee will honor Cathy Allyn for her continuous work to support the New Durham community.
Tickets for the event are $25 per person, with the bring-a-friend cost of two for $45.00. You can reserve your tickets online at http://goo.gl/forms/9ewKIHZZWZ or by sending your reservation check to TriTown Honors Dinner, P.O. Box 637, Farmington, NH 03835.
