Friends of St. Patrick give back

The Friends of St. Patrick recently held their charity presentation and live auction, presenting $20,000 - $10,000 apiece - to the Society of St. Vincent dePaul and Walpole Community Food Pantry, respectively.

Both Bill Ryan, who accepted the generous donation on behalf of the Society of St. Vincent dePaul, and Bill Willmoth, who accepted the donation on behalf of the Walpole Community Food Pantry, delivered short acceptance and informational speeches, which can be viewed on the Friends of St. Patrick Facebook page,

In the auction, the 50” Roku TV was won by Faye Rose Donovan of Greenfield, MA; the Chris Wagner autographed jersey was won by Karrie Davis of Walpole; and the $1,000 worth of lottery tickets was also won by Karrie Davis.
