My Fellow Paisans,
Words cannot express the gratitude I feel to all of those who came and supported our first Sunday Family Dinner in July – the children made crafts, families played Bocce outside and new family memories were definitely made. We had well over 120 in attendance and have already scheduled our next one for Sunday, October 6, between 1:00-4:00 p.m. after the Columbus Wreath Laying Ceremony. Mark your calendars today!
Again, FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER is NOT ending – we now just have an additional Lodge event on Sundays 😎🇮🇹 which is giving our members who are unable to attend FND, another option to come to the Lodge and enjoy their Italian heritage on Sunday afternoons.
Also, just a reminder since the St. Gabriel Festival is scheduled for August 17th and 18th (contact me if you’d like to volunteer) our Lodge’s monthly Bingo will be moved up one week earlier to August 11th beginning at 1:00 p.m.
I can not emphasize enough my undying appreciation for our Lodge Volunteers – without them, NO event is even possible.
As we continue to make sure our Lodge stays a positive family option for our children, grandchildren and future generations, I not only ask for your continued support, but any ideas you may have for new and exciting events which will show our community and families what it means to be a proud Italian American. Please feel free to email me any suggestions that you may have, we may not use them all, but yours may also be the idea that becomes the next event for our Lodge. Thank You and God Bless,
Mike Castino, President
