A message from our President

Hello members,

April started with our first birthday dinner. We had a wonderful meal of Ravioli & Swiss steak. Thanks to our dinner chairmen, Basil & Rich Rago, Also to our cooks, Michele Gasparro, Don Nicoli & Alfonso DePianto. Great job guys.

Our family dinner was our annual Big Band night. This is one of my favorite events. Our chairman for this event was Art Parziale. Of course our dinner was delicious. Thank you to our cooks, Art Parziale, Dino DePianto & Evan Matthews. The music by “In Full Swing” was outstanding. The evening was wonderful.

The Badarello and Spalasso families chaired our 2nd Birthday dinner. Our meal was fantastic. Thank you to our cooks, Joe Scodella, Angelo Marchi & Lonnie Chase. This dinner also welcomed back the ever popular Chaco Taco. Thanks guys, for finding one of the classic desserts.

We have made a few improvements to our club recently. The west or “new” parking lot continues to evolve; most recently a new fence was put up. It looks great and came in under budget. I would like to thank Rich Vila & Vila Construction for a job well done. Inside, our front bar has new cash registers. The bartenders tell me they work as fantastic as they look. A big thank you to the luncheon committee for their generosity in purchasing these for the club. Thanks guys.

I would like to thank Rich Giramita for his professionalism and attention to detail in helping with a guest that had a medical issue. Rich, thank you so much.

As always thanks to all the bartenders, waiters, ticket sellers & kitchen crew that help make all our dinners & events a success.

God Bless & Sempre Avanti
