From the Chairman – January 2023

Cari Fratelli del Fratellanza, Auguri per un anno nuovo buono e pieno di amicizia. Spero che posso trovare tanti di voi al Club nelle prossimi mesi.

We have a new president and a couple of new officers. As Ron has mentioned, we are getting off to a good start & I hope that more & more members return to events at the club.

2022 was the beginning of getting past the pandemic & let’s hope we can keep it up. I want to thank the many members who stepped up last year in so many ways.

The long history of the club is that we keep many traditions while we always bring new blood into the club & we often try new things. Please think about what you like to do & what you can bring to the
club. We can use more of everything.

I want to make a special mention about our Women’s Social Club. The Fratellanza Club would not be the fun & active place that it is without them. The men help the Ladies on occasion & they help us all the time, so thank you to them.

The last item for this letter is about our roof situation. You all know that we spent a lot of money to reroof the dining room several years ago. Well, the low roof over our front & rear bars has had small leaks over the years that we have patched, but now there is a big leak & I think a reroofing project is required. The roof area is much smaller than the dining room so the cost should be a lot lower as well. We have the funds on hand to accomplish this reroofing & I think that our normal dinner business will replenish our savings account. If you know a good commercial roofer who can give us a fair price please don’t hesitate to pass the contact info on to me.

Grazie tanto,
Roland Lazzarotto
