The Old School, 20 Gay St., will host a radio interview and dinner-to-follow Wednesday, Oct. 26.

From 5 to 6 p.m., the “Rockland Metro” show on WRFR-LP, 93.3 FM, will interview Terry Pinto, director of Rockland’s Pollution Control Department. The subject of the discussion will be Bond Measure Question 1, which calls for the raising of a $10,400,000 bond to fund repairs and improvements to Rockland’s aging sewer and wastewater treatment facilities.

Immediately following the interview, the Old School will hold a dinner symposium hosted by Pinto on making Rockland more walkable.

Mandel is the founder and director of the Knox County Recovery Coalition, an alliance of local professionals and volunteers providing recovery help, legal assistance, family support, educational outreach and other programs aimed at reducing the burden of addiction in the community.

Each week, WRFR’s “Rockland Metro” show invites a guest to discuss life in Rockland. Guests often participate afterwards in an Old School dinner symposium.

Dinner symposia at the Old School are free and open to the public. Participation in each symposium is limited to 12, so participants must reserve their place in advance. Participants are asked to help by bringing food, helping prepare the event and/or cleaning up afterwards.
