“Membri di Fratellanza”, Wow, I am Rich Vila and will be working as Your President at the Fratellanza Club for 2019. I can’t believe that 4 years have gone by with Tim Tomei as our President, whom I have learned so much from being his Vice President, along with my good friend John Barassi, former president and currently serving as 2nd Vice president. “Grazie Tim per tutto il tuoduro lavoro e il tuo amore per il Fratellanza Club. I hope that all are having a Merry Christmas season and wish all of you a good start to the coming New Year.Before looking at all the events of December, let me start off by thanking members from the Men’s and Women’s Club who were involved inputting up all the wonderful Christmas decorations. They are beautiful to see and experience. Our 1st event in December was the Christmas Brunch where Art, Michele,and Angelo and their team did another great job in the kitchen in serving over 100 people. Next, we had our annual Board/Officers dinner where Roland & Evan prepared an excellent meal while being served by Ladies president Marilyn, and Becky.
We then had our First Birthday Dinner, where Don,Angelo, & David did a great job wit hthe fusilli pesto and roasted chicken.Next, we had our Family Christmas Dinner chaired by Russel Carrel,where we had Minestrone Soup and Roast Beef. The soup was excellent!Coming soon is our
Children’s Christmas party with Santa. Thanks in advance to Men’s and Women’s club members that tirelessly helped with this event. I am sure this also turned out to be a great experience for the children of the Fratellanza Club. Also coming later in December is our Members only Christmas dinner on the 20th and the return of our New Years Eve party. Please mark your calendar in January for our 87th anniversary dinner on the 26th. We will be presenting our Award of Merit to one of our outstanding members, while enjoying some of our Club’s history through pictures of events and people done by our Historian Gianfranco Sciacero, all the while being serenaded by the ever popular George Campi. Finally, I want to thank each and everyone, from the Dishwashers,Cooks, Waiters, Ladies Club members and officers, men’s members, officers,board members, bartenders, ticket sales, janitorial, you name it, but Thank you to all, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
“Che tu possa essere Benedetto neltuo la vita e Dio vi benedica”
