A Message from our President

Hello members,
September concluded with our 2nd Birthday dinner, hosted by the Vila & Lico families. We had another great meal. Thank you to our cooks, Art Parziale, Evan Matthews & Lonnie Chase. Thanks also to Rich Vila and his crew for taking good care of us all.

October started with our first birthday dinner. Over 280 members and friends came together to have great time at the Fratellanza. Our dinner was fantastic. Thank you to our cooks Art Parziale and Angelo Marchi. Our wait stuff did a great job. Thank you Sally and team.

The Fratellanza Men’s club took first place in the annual East Bay Italian Clubs Bocce Tournament held at the Fratellanza Club. Congratulations to our team of Rich Giaramita, Ralph Brignone, Roland Lazzarotto, & Bruce DeBenedictis. Great job guys, especially since Rich & Ralph also bartended during the tournament.

We also had an excellent luncheon, cooked by Michele Gasparro & assisted by Art Parziale, Evan Matthews, & Dino De Pianto. We would like to thank Roland Lazzarotto for transforming the outdoor bocce court from a weed pen to a condition not seen in years.

As always, thank you to our bartenders, wait staff & ticket sellers, who make all our dinners & events a success.

God Bless & Sempre Avanti,
Tim Tomei
