From our President – August 2019

“Membri di Fratellanza”,
Due to the 4th of July, our 1st Birthday dinner occurred on the 11th of July and was cooked by Michele, Angelo, & Roger, while being chaired by the Pricco family, and we enjoyed a great dinner of Crab Salad, Risotto, & Roast beef. Great job all. Then 2 days later we had our Family dinner; Western Night, which was cooked by Michele & Carl. They provided us with Salad, tomatoes w/Bagnette, Pasta, BBQ Chicken & Ribs, Beans, & Corn on the Cob. No one left hungry and most were full, those being full were able to dance some of it off.
The 2nd Birthday dinner will be chaired by Hines, Taddei, Tomei families as usual we will be having Salad, Rotini w Pesto, & Vern’s Roasted Chicken.
Please come to our Friday Luncheon which is on the 26th of July; we will be having Risotto & Roast Beef. This makes July another Fantastic month for the Fratellanza.
Finally, don’t forget that on the 28th of July we are having our annual Scholarship Golf Tournament starting at 8:00am followed with a dinner at the Fratellanza at 4:00, all are asked to participate at one or both events, it is for a great cause.
Che tu sia benedetto e Dio vi benedica nella vostra vita.
May you be blessed, and God bless you in your lifetime.

From the Chairman of the Board – August 2019

Hello Fratellanza Brothers, Greetings Fratellanza members,
I encourage you to come to our August members’ meeting on the 6th. We will be making some significant financial decisions. As you may know, we have been working on compliance with a Health Department inspection and a Fire Marshal visit. The corrections are almost complete and they have been very costly. You may also remember that we had a lot of roof leaks the past rainy season so the Board voted early this year to reroof the dining room portion of our building. We have put off this work for many years and now we are going to have to pay. Fortunately we have saved enough to pay for the work but we will not have a lot left over.
Recently we had ten people show up for our Work Weekend and they completed many tasks that saved us some money. To keep the club in the black we need members to come to our dinners and bring friends and family. We also would like to see more members volunteer as waiters at our dinners. I do it almost every month and it can be a fun evening. No experience is necessary.
Ciao Fratelli, spero di vederti al club,
Roland Lazzarotto
