From the Chairman – August 2021

Ciao Cari membri e amici del Fratellanza Club,
I usually like to look forward to things coming up but so much has happened in the past 2 weeks that I need to share it with everyone. On July 17 we had a big work day at the club. There were 16 people on Saturday and a 17th on Sunday so I will not name them all. We addressed almost every item on the task list and the focus was cleaning and painting. The areas inside used by members throughout the club were thoroughly scrubbed. The front façade was treated to a fresh coat of paint and it looks good. Art P provided us with a great lunch at mid day and it was good. I will point out that I have quite a bit of experience with volunteer work days and I’ve learned that it needs to be fun and productive. One of the things that makes it fun is people get to pick their job. Nothing is assigned and if one sees something that they think needs to be done they can do it even if it isn’t on the list. I also like to lead by example so I will admit that I took the stinkiest jobs, cleaning out our two grease traps. But I also pruned some trees in the garden, which I like to do, so I had fun too.
I also need to point out the great work by our Golf Committee who set up a fun day last Sunday on the course with a huge turnout of golfers and then we reopened the club with a nice Fratellanza meal. The club felt great with over 150 diners in the dining room. Somewhere between those two days we also had another Friday Drive-Thru Luncheon. We all want this pandemic to be over but we know it is not. We need to be careful and stay safe as we take baby steps.
I hope you are vaccinated and feel like joining us at the Club soon.
Spero che ci vediamo presto.
Roland Lazzarotto

From our President – August 2021

“Membri della Fratellanza”,
As July is winding down, we had a great drive-thru Lunch, a fantastic golf showing and an even better dinner this past week for our Grand Opening. We had the workers wearing masks with seating of members and friends in Pods with distancing. Everything seem to go good for this charity event; Thanks to all that worked and showed up.
For August we will be starting our normal Birthday dinners on the 5th of August for Men only, and on the 19th of August our 2nd Birthday dinner for Men & Women. Our Friday Drive-thru lunch will be on August 27th. Hope to see you at the Club!
Also our Board and Members meetings are on the 3rd of August and we will be having a Spuntino for the 1st time in over a year and a half which will be served at 6pm. Please attend the members meeting if you are able, we have some very important items to talk about.
Che voi siete benedetti e Dio vi benedica nella vostra vita.
May you be blessed, and God bless you in your lifetime.
