MELROSE — The Melrose Police Department is pleased to share that Chief Michael L. Lyle enjoyed a fun, family-style dinner with a family that won the annual “Pizza with the Chief” raffle at a community event.

In September, as part of the City of Melrose and Melrose Chamber of Commerce’s annual Victorian Fair that highlights local businesses, Chief Lyle once again offered to have a relaxing, sit-down dinner with the winner of a raffle.

On Friday, Nov. 4, the Lattanzi family of Melrose won the raffle, and was joined by a few close friends, Chief Lyle and his wife, and some Melrose Police Department staff for a delicious meal of pizza, salad, bread, and dipping oils at Bobby C’s Ristorante, 20 Main St.

Melrose Officer Sean Morris and his K-9 partner Giselle were special guests and were welcomed by the raffle-winning family and friends, as well as Bobby C’s exceptional staff.

“Everyone at the Melrose Police Department is always looking for unique ways to connect with the community, and the ‘Pizza with the Chief’ event has become a meaningful and relaxing way to get to know the families we serve and protect,” said Chief Lyle. “Once again, it was great to meet the family, have good conversation and connect with them over fantastic food in a casual setting.”
