Chris Zizza, a hardwood-flooring distributor from Framingham who joined the society in 1997 at the suggestion of the late Andy Brown of Needham, came to this year’s meeting with Brown’s grandson, commercial loan officer Andy Rafter of Medfield, and sang “Twist and Shout” on stage, dedicating it to his old friend, Brown.
“Traditions should never die. Everyone marks the first Tuesday in December off on their calendar at the beginning of the year,” said Zizza. “When I got an e-mail saying, ‘You in for Horse Thieves this year?’ I was, like, ‘Are you kidding?’ ”
