A message from our President

Dear Members,

We start March with a re-cap of our annual crab feeds, which were held February 28th & March 8th. Both can be summed up in one word, WOW. Over 800 guests enjoyed salad, pasta, garlic bread and delicious crab. First, a big thank- you to Rich Giaramita for handling all the reservations, and seating arrangements for both events. Thank you to our cooks, Art Parziale, Michele Gasparro, and Lonnie Chase. I would also like to thank our bartenders, Rich, Ralph, Gianfranco, John and Larry. Much appreciation and thanks to our wait staff, Rose Marie, Elena, Sally, Lee, Adriana, Francesca, Clair, Lillian, Jim, Alex, Vito, Jim, Jerry, Grant, Roland, Rebecca, Mario, Dennis, Debbie, Evan, Renee, Mike, Sina, John, Alan, Ron, Anthony and John. Thank you to all those who graciously donated prizes for the raffles. Much appreciation to Bob Porta, Rich Vila, Herb Seidell and Don Walker for pre-selling both raffle and 50-50 tickets. It takes many helping hands to put on the Crab Feeds and I would personally like to thank all of you that made it possible.

Grant Woodruff and Carlos Poza chaired our first birthday dinner in March. The ravioli and roast beef were as usual a big hit! Thanks to our cooks that evening, Joe Scodella, Angelo Marchi and Nino Petracca.

The second birthday dinner was our annual polenta dinner, chaired again this year by Anthony Golden. Once again, thanks to our cooks, Art Parziale, Evan Matthews, and Dino De Pianto.

And as always, thanks to our bartenders, waiters and kitchen crew for both dinners.

I hope to see you at the club in April. Our Members meeting is April 10. Our family dinner is the popular “Italian Night” so makes plans to join us at the club. I want to wish everyone Buona Pasqua. God Bless & Sempre Avanti.

A message from our President

Dear Members,
We ended January with our annual Banga Cauda dinner. It was enjoyed by 130 guests. Thanks to our cook, Joe Scodella, and to Bob Porta & Alan Pricco for running the exciting 50/50 raffle.

February started off with our super bowl party. Over 20 football fans had a good day, with good friends, good food, and a great game. Thanks to Joe Scodella and all who helped make this day fun.

The first birthday dinner was chaired by Tom Walker & Andrew Balistreri. Their annual pasta w/pesto and Sausage & peppers menu was a big hit. Thanks to our cooks Michele Gasparro, Angelo Marchi & Nino Petracca.

February’s family dinner was chaired by Ralph Brignone. The evening started out with games & crafts for the kids. These were headed up by Ralph’s wife Joan & helpers Vera, Mary Ann, Melinda, Terry & Renee. Just before dinner the kids took their swings at the pignatta. Successful, the candy was enjoyed by all. Our dinner of Salad, Ravioli and Pork Roast was delicious. Thanks to our cooks, Art Parziale & Dino DiPianto February’s 2nd birthday dinner was chaired by Evan Matthews. The fusilli pasta and roasted chicken were great. I would like to thank our cooks that evening, Joe Scodella and Angelo Marchi. As always a big thanks goes to our bartenders, waiters, ticket sellers and kitchen crew for their time, dedication and effort they give every dinner.

I will report on both crab feeds in next month’s newsletter.

God Bless & Sempre Avanti,

Tim Tomei
