A Kent dinner recently raised funds for the purchase of the Lucas 3 Chest Compression System for the Kent Volunteer Fire Department. The meal will include fresh-made pasta, sauce, meatballs, fresh-picked organic salad, bread, and pies by local baker Patsy Stroble. Above, Kent Republican Town Committee Chairman Scott R. Harvey, left, presents a check representing funds from the dinner to Kent Volunteer Fire Department Ambulance Chief Mike Petrone, right. The men are joined by Kent Republican Town Committee members and spaghetti dinner co-chairmen Susie Rundall and John Grant. The dinner and efforts thus far raised $7,000. Fundraising efforts continue to purchase the Lucas . Tax deductible donations can be made to the KVFD, P.O. Box 355 Kent, CT 06757. Checks should include “Lucas 3” on the memo line.
