Benefit planned for fire chief diagnosed with bone cancer

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Please join us Oct. 20 for a Benefit Dinner and Raffle to support Chief Rene Houle and to thank him for his dedicated service to our community. Houle was a very active member of the Wilton Fire Department for more than 30 years and served as the chief for 13 years. Houle has recently been diagnosed with a very aggressive bone cancer.

The Wilton Firemen’s Relief Association, the Lyndeborough Firefighters Association and the Wilton-Lyndeborough Women’s Club are sponsoring a Benefit Spaghetti Dinner. The Friends of Rene Houle group is donating the dessert for the dinner.

There also will be a raffle, with many prizes donated by local businesses. LA Limo, of Wilton, has generously donated the grand prize, two Celtics tickets along with a round-trip limousine service for the game. All raffle prizes will be drawn by the end of the spaghetti dinner. Raffle tickets will be on sale before and at the dinner.

All proceeds from the dinner and the raffle will go to assist Houle and his family in meeting his ever-mounting day-to-day medical expenses. The benefit dinner will be held at the Second Congregational Church, at the corner of Gregg and Dale streets in Wilton, 5- 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20.

Donations for the dinner will be accepted at the door. If you are unable to attend but would still like to donate, please call Joe Torre, president of the Wilton Firemen’s Relief Association, at 654-6845.
