Girl Scouts Gear up for a Season of Giving

In Massachusetts, Randolph Wicked Local reports that for the 40th consecutive year, the Lombardo family, owners of Lombardo’s event facility and Vincent’s Nightclub in Randolph, will invite hundreds of guests who are in need of a meal this Thanksgiving to attend the annual holiday dinner. The tradition began almost four decades ago by Salvatore Lombardo and his mother, Nina, who decided to serve a Thanksgiving dinner to those in need.

This year’s dinner will be made of 420 pounds of turkey, 300 pounds of potatoes, 20 gallons of gravy, 10 cases of pasta with 35 gallons of delicious marinara sauce and 150 pies.

In addition to Paula Lombardo and her family, this nourishing holiday production is put on with the assistance of more than 125 volunteers. These volunteers range from firefighters to Girl Scouts and include Lombardo’s staff and local families.
