Close to 200 people dined on pasta at the fund-raising event. “It was our best year yet,” said Pine Rock firefighter Al Pereira, who serves on the department’s fund-raising committee.

The meal was donated and prepared by Verace’s Pizzeria, Tavern & Italian Eatery on Center Street in downtown Shelton. Guests dined on ziti, meatballs, sausage, salad and dessert.
