Hello members,
October ended with our spooktacular Halloween family diner. Chaired by Roland & Becky Lazzarotto, the evening was filled with fun and games and costume contest for kids and adults. The dinner was great. Thank you to our cooks, Art Parziale, Michele Gasparro, & Alfonso De Pianto.

November started with our first birthday dinner. Our dinner chairmen were Roger Laurel & Robert Petri. As is our custom at all our dinners in November, we recognized and thanked all veterans in attendance. We also thanked all those who are active and reserve military along with all first responders in attendance. The dining hall was decorated with the pennants of all the military services; these were purchased and placed by member Roger Laurel. To honor our country and pay respect to our military and first responders, Roger led us in the pledge of allegiance. We then sat down to a great meal. Thank you to our cooks, Michele Gasparro, Angelo Marchi & Don Nicole.

Our family dinner was a fantastic evening. It started with recognizing all our Veterans, active & reserve military, and our first responders. We enjoyed a delicious meal.

Thanks to our dinner chairman, John Pelosi, and to all who attended this fun evening.
