City Leaders Prepare Food for the Snow Workers

More than 500 sandwiches, 10 gallons of soup and chips are ready for the snowplow drivers, emergency personnel and others involved in the city's effort during the snow storm.

Rapid sandwich making was on the agenda for a small gathering of Attleboro leaders Friday afternoon at the home of Sue Blais, vice chair of the Attleboro Republican City Committee.

The sandwiches are for the snowplow drivers, emergency personnel and others involved in the city's effort during the snowstorm. Soup and chips are also being provided. All the food is being provided for free and nobody is paid to prepare it.

The food is needed because stores are closed during most of the time while the city is handling issues with the snowstorm, Blais said. 

Those helping with the sandwich making were Mayor Kevin Dumas, City Councilors Jay DiLisio and Brian Kirby, city administrator Barry LaCasse and Attleboro GOP Chair Howard Bibeault.

Not republican but this is a huge public service. The crews are at it hour after hour. Right effort" as Buddhists say.

Feeding people who are working late at night/early morning to make the city function after a storm is a bipartisan issue.
