WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Republican Town Committee will host its annual Spring Gala on Thursday, June 12, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Birchwood Country Club in Westport.

This year’s dinner and awards ceremony will honor four Republicans who have gone above and beyond the ordinary to serve and improve the Westport Community:

  • Westport Board of Finance member Michael Rea,
  • Westport RTM member Carla Rea,
  • former Westport Board of Education member Michael McGovern, and
  • the late Bob Lasprogato, who served as Westport's third selectman and the Republican registrar of voters.

“We are so proud to honor these dedicated Westporters who have donated their time and talents in service to our community,” Lorainne Wetmore, chairman of the 2014 Westport Republicans Spring Gala, said in a statement. “They are devoted volunteers who exemplify hard-work, sacrifice and commitment, and we are proud to have them as leaders in the Republican Party.”

Tickets for the event, which includes beer and wine, dinner and dancing, cost $125 per person and can be purchased by calling 203-454-5294.
