My Dear Members:

I hope you had a wonderful Family Day long weekend.

As you know, the Davedi Club monthly General Supper Meetings are mandated by our Constitution and By-Laws. Recently, the turn-out for these meetings has been far less than ideal. In order for these meetings to continue on the same basis we need you, the Members of the Davedi Club, to attend. So please come, bring a friend, enjoy the fellowship, ask questions and bring your ideas forward at these important gatherings. I truly hope to see all of you at the next General Dinner Meeting on Thursday February 25th.

The sensational Juno Award Winning Dominic Mancuso Group will come to the Davedi Club following a European tour. Dominic is a singer, musician, composer and producer from Toronto with roots in Italy and multi-lingual compositions influenced by world culture.

In January, the Davedi Club hosted a live viewing of WWE Royal Rumble in the Verdi Room. We would like to thank those who attended this event! We look forward to a bigger crowd for the much anticipated Wrestlemania event in March.

On February 7th, the main hall was used to show the Superbowl live on the big screen. The event had a great turn out once again! We would like to thank those who brought food and took part in the night’s festivity.

On Sunday, February 28th we will be hosting a Scopa tournament for all members as well as anyone in the public. Cost of entry into the tournament is $5.00 (snacks included). Registration closes on Thursday, February 25th. Please sign up in the office ahead of time.

Lastly, I would like to thank my committee of hard worker’s and volunteers that have helped organized these events.

Special thanks goes out to Joseph Delfino, Robert Perrotta, Anthony Nucara and Anthony Ricciuti.

Nonno Inverno
Ecco tutto imbacuccato
Nonno inverno s’avvicin
Ha nel viso carrucciato
Tramontana, neve e brina.

Nonno inverno, che ci porti
Sotto il ruvido mentello?
Sono nudi I campi e gli orti,
E anche nudo il poverello

E ci vuole, per scaldare,
Molta Iegna al focolare!
Per scaldare quei piedini
Che la neve f gonfiare

Per scaldare quei visini
Che il tuo freddo fa tremare,
Nonno inverno sii clement
Per chi soffre e non ha niente!

Il grano freddo di gennaio
Riempie il granaio

Gennaio fa il peccato
E marzo ne e incolpato.
