Methuen Police Host Annual Senior Pasta Dinner
METHUEN — Chief Joseph Solomon is pleased to announce that the Methuen Police Department hosted its annual senior pasta dinner earlier this week.
Methuen Police served dinner to more than 300 senior citizens on Tuesday, May 31 from 4-6 p.m. at the Methuen Senior Center, 77 Lowell St. Members of the department served pasta with sauce, meatballs and fresh Italian bread for dinner, and coffee and cake for dessert.
Chief Solomon, the Methuen Police Patrolman’s Union and the Methuen Police Superior Officer’s Union sponsored the event. The fresh Italian bread and cake were donated by Piro’s Bakery, 300 Merrimack St.
“We always enjoy putting on events like this, especially for our senior citizens who do so much for our community,” Chief Solomon said. “As always, the event had a wonderful turnout and we enjoyed spending time talking with our seniors about the community and anything else that was on their minds.”
The dinner is organized each year as a thank you to the senior citizens in Methuen, who are often hesitant to call police for help. This event provides seniors with an opportunity to meet with police officers and speak with them about any concerns they may have, in a relaxed environment.
