Last Wednesday, November 9, the Milton Foundation for Education held a special event in honor of major donors supporting the MFE's mission to enhance education and expand opportunities for all of Milton's public school students.
MFE board member Astrid Hajjar organized the event, and board member Patti Elliott and her husband Daryl graciously opened their home and provided delicious appetizers and desserts for the attendees, who included donors, current and past MFE board members, past and future MHS alumni honorees, Milton Superintendent of Schools Mary Gormley and Leroy Walker, member of the Milton School Committee.
Bob Halloran, sportscaster and author of Irish Thunder – the book on which much of popular film The Fighter is based – entertained the crowd with remarks about the books and films he has written.
In addition, co-chairs of the MFE's 2012 Celebration for Education Meg Kaster and Laura Conway introduced the theme for this coming year's event, The Big Beach Ball, to be held at the Boston Marriott Quincy March 10, 2012.
