BRISTOL – Tickets are on sale through Friday for a grab and go pasta supper at the Bristol Senior Center that can be picked up Oct. 13. The fundraiser will be offered monthly, with meals prepared by a team of local senior volunteers.

The pasta supper will include 12 meatballs, sauce and a pound of pasta. Those who purchase tickets will be able to pick up their meal on Oct. 13 between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.

Patricia Tomascak, executive director, said that the meals will be offered monthly, with the next ones being Nov. 10 and Dec. 8. Tickets must be purchased by Friday before, or by Nov. 4 and Dec. 2 respectively for the next months’ events.

“Our first pasta supper was a sit-down event and it went really well,” she said. “The next few months are going to be really busy, so we’ll be doing grab and go meals for October, November and December.”

Tomascak said that the fundraiser was suggested by local seniors, as a means to support programming at the senior center.

“We try to offer all of our programs either for free or for as minimal cost as possible,” she said.

Tomascak said that there is a group of 30 volunteers that come in to roll the meatballs and get everything ready for the community to enjoy. Last month, when a sit-down meal was offered, volunteers also prepared a salad and dessert. Those who wish to help prepare the meals are welcome to join in.

“We never say no to volunteers,” said Tomascak.

Tomascak encouraged people to purchase tickets and help support their local senior center.

“Come enjoy a real, home cooked pasta supper made by our local seniors,” she said. “We have the best recipe in town.”

Tickets are $15 for a meal for 4. Tickets can be purchased in the main office of the Senior Center at 240 Stafford Ave.
