         Thank You Cabot Corporation and Comcast!

The 2017 Cabot lunch brought some 125 patrons, supporters and friends together for a SPECIAL Holiday meal prepared by Shawsheen Tech’s Culinary Department. In a packed but joyous room everyone enjoyed great food, warm service from a busy Kitchen crew headed by Melissa Paolicelli that included 8 happy and attentive CABOT employees. 

We thank everyone, including staff and volunteers, who helped to make this a grand event especially our lead funder Cabot Corporation and Comcast for the giveaway bags. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa!
