A Message From our President

Hello members,

Late summer and fall are rapidly approaching and I hope everyone has been enjoying the nice summer weather. We had some great events during August. Our first birthday dinner was chaired by Dave Hunter. The menu of pasta and pesto was enjoyed by everyone. Many thanks to Dave, his wait staff, and the cooks and helpers for a great dinner. I am sorry that I was unable to attend our classic car show dinner dance chaired by Board member Ron Blair. I heard from so many members that it was a great event and that the barbecue dinner was just outstanding. Many thanks to Ron and his kitchen helpers and wait staff for putting together such a wonderful event. Thanks also to all the members and friends that provided classic cars for everyone to enjoy! Our second birthday dinner, chaired by Pat Geoghegan, was also a successful event. The rigatoni and chicken marsala dinner was enjoyed by everyone who attended. A big thanks to Pat, the cooks, wait staff, and helpers for doing such a great job.

The monthly dinner dance is a long standing tradition at the Fratellanza Club that has been enjoyed for many years by everyone, members and non-members alike. If you haven’t attended one in a while, try to make our upcoming September Italian Night dinner dance on the third Saturday. It is on the third Saturday because of the Italian trip that many of the club members will be enjoying in early September.

Our annual scholarship golf classic and dinner, held on August 3rd, was a great success this year as it always is. Thanks to all the committee members including Steve Taddei, Larry Quirico, Ed Ari, and Jim Peretti and all the helpers for all their time in setting this up. Also, special thanks to all the golfers and those who donated raffle prizes and also those who donated a sponsorship.
Please try to attend an upcoming event at the club. Also, please see the attached flyers regarding the Italian Night dinner dance and Italian Picnic, both in September. I hope to see as many of you as possible at the club.
