My Dear Members:

My Dear Members: I hope and trust that all is well for you and your loved ones.
This month I would like to offer a big “Thank You” to Honorary Executive Member Jim Marmino and his committee for the excellent job they did for this year’s Order of Merit Presentation Dinner which took place on Saturday April 30th. My congratulations once again go out to Adele Williams and Sylvia Antinozzi for receiving this prestigious award for their many contributions to the community.

I would also like to thank Benito and Janet Zimbalatti and the rest of the Culture Committee for all that they do to promote our culture and heritage. The recent concert with the Dominic Mancuso Group was outstanding.

Finally, I would like to thank you Club Manager, Phillip Penna and our new Maintenance Keeper, Michael Ethier, for the beautiful work recently done in the Dante Hall, Culture Room, and the lobby. Keep up the good work.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the General Dinner Meeting on Thursday May 26th.

Saluti and God Bless,
Vince Orlando President
