WILMINGTON, MA — Below are 5 things to do in Wilmington on Friday, May 10, 2019:
#1) Wilmington Good Guy Award Ceremony
The Wilmington Good Guy Committee has selected this year’s inductee as the 2019 Wilmington Good Guy. This individual will be honored by the Community, family and friends on Friday, May 10, 2019 at the Wilmington Knights of Columbus. This individual is recognized by so many people in town who appreciate their involvement in charitable activities and their willingness to help others in need.
The Committee thanks all who sent nomination letters for all of the candidates whose names were submitted. Wilmington continues to have more than their fair share of great people who do so much for this Town and whom are equally well-deserving.
Wondering who this year’s winner is?… It is still a secret to that person, or at least we hope it is. Tickets for the dinner, “roast,” and accolades are available from members of the Good Guy Committee, or they can be obtained from 2018 Good Guy, Dianna DiGregorio by email at email@example.com. Tickets are $30.00 per person. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
Doors open for cocktails at 6:30PM and the dinner and festivities start at 7:30PM. The Good Guy Committee hopes to see you there!
