SHELTON — The Shelton High School Class of 1981 invites members of the Newtown community to attend the second annual fundraiser event in memory of Jesse McCord Lewis, son of fellow graduate Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, who was lost on 12/14.
The event will be held at The Stone Barn, 175 Shelton Road (Route 110) in Monroe, on Saturday, October 25, from 7 to 11 pm.

The event will include appetizers, buffet dinner, dessert, and cash bar, as well as auction items and prizes.
Entertainment will be provided by Lost Rebel.

Anyone interested in a round of golf before the event is invited to call the golf pro at Whitney Farms at 203-268-0707 to reserve tee time and note that it is for the Jesse Lewis fundraiser.
The cost for 18 holes, including cart, is $60, or $35 for nine holes.
