The highlight of the evening was announcing our award of merit recipient, Michele Gasparro. We will honor Michele at our 85th anniversary dinner in January.
Our annual kids Christmas party was a great day. 160 kids plus parents & family enjoyed the traditional hot dog lunch. Then it was time for Santa to make his appearance and hand out the gifts. I would like to thank Santa and all his helpers for their hard work that day. A big thank you goes to our ladies club and those who help them for getting the presents, wrapping the presents and organizing this whole event. They put in many hours of work. Thank you so much.
Don’t forget the Fratellanza Club will be celebrating its 85th anniversary on January 28, 2017. Come celebrate our club’s history and future. Club historian, Gianfranco Sciacero, will have displays of past Fratellanza club events. This is always a treat and you shouldn’t miss this one. So get your groups together and your reservations in early. I’ll see you there.
I would like to say a special thank you to all those that helped put up the Christmas trees and decorate the club. As usual our Club looks fantastic.
As always thank you to all our bartenders, waiters, ticket sellers & kitchen crew that help make all our dinners & events a success.
