From our President – March 2023

For those of you who missed it, our Anniversary dinner was one of the best dinners I have ever had (thank you Rich Vila for doing a superb job of procuring the food, absolutely incredible!). Also, Thank you Tim Tomei for stepping in as our Master of Ceremonies for the evening & to Gianfranco Sciacero who is always there to perfectly place our tables, to the many volunteers from our ladies social club & each & everyone of you who helped make this evening a huge success. The dining hall looked wonderful & it was simply great cutting into a 1-1/2 inch stuffed, bone-in pork chop for dinner. Our cooks were outstanding & a huge thank you to Sherri Nichelman who prepared home made dessert for all of our dinner guests. Again a huge thank you to all.

I have heard from many of you that there is interest in experiencing the Napa Valley Wine Train. I will be finalizing a date & hopefully it will be convenient for all of those interested in attending. It is a great afternoon with gourmet food & wine; tours of wineries & of course camaraderie for all. The best time to attend this event is between March & May so look for more information to follow as well as other planned events for 2023.

Our Crab feeds are right around the corner & reservations are pouring in. Please remember that seating is limited; First to reserve is guaranteed so please do not delay in sending in the number of guests in your dinner party. We have two dates to support this event, Saturday February 25th & Sunday, March 5th, so get involved & stay involved.

We are continuing to monitor our roof issue & those who attended our membership meeting this week approved a preliminary budget to begin this repair as soon as it can be scheduled after the issuance of a permit. Please remain confident that everything possible is being done to limit & control the damage. We will be upgrading our back bar with in conjunction to the needed repairs of our roof & ceiling.

Lastly, a great way to stay involved with the Club, particularly the new members who have joined within the past few years is to chair a dinner, help serve an event or to bring your friends & family to one of our functions. I will be contacting many of you to step up & be a part of the workings of our Club, you can help make it better for all of us.

We have some exciting opportunities that will occur in 2023 ranging from a car show & a professional gaming tournament at the Club during summer. It’s a good time to get involved & stay involved, so let’s do it together!

It is the right thing to do, so let’s do the right thing.

Thank you,
Ron Blair
