Almost 200 people were served ziti, meatballs, sausage, salad and dessert at the fund-raising event. The meal was donated and prepared by Verace’s Pizzeria, Tavern & Italian Eatery on Center Street in downtown Shelton.

“It was our best year yet,” said Pine Rock firefighter Al Pereira, who serves on the volunteer department’s fund-raising committee.
