President`s Message

My Dear Members,

My deepest condolences go out to Jim and Cathy Marmino for the loss of their loved ones. Our hearts are with you. I wish to also express my condolences to the family and friends of our long- time member, Michael Edwards, who recently passed away. We shall all miss him.

My best wishes go out to Honourary member, and my brother-in-law, Joseph D’Agostino. We hope you get well soon.
A big “thank you” to the Davedi Club Steering Committee, Jim Marmino, Janet Zimbalatti, Adele Williams, Louise Defonzo, Cathy Fruci, David Zimbalatti, and their committees in carrying out activities which promote our Italian Heritage in the fields of education, music, and sports. I would also like to thank all the Ladies and Men who volunteer for the spaghetti suppers, Friday lunches, Grape Stomping, Golf Tournament, Wine Gala, and more. All of you are the reason our Club is strong, alive and well.

Finally, I wish to acknowledge our management and staff for their continued professional service.

One proud President, Vince Orlando

A big thank you to all the volunteers! We hope you can make it out to the November Spaghetti Supper. Reservations are available for seating between 4- 5pm.
A special thank you to the Ladies of the 2016 Ladies Auxiliary Executive, you have all been a pleasure to work with this year.

Message from Ladies Aux. Craft Show Convenors:
Once again the Ladies Auxiliary hosted their annual Artisans Craft Show. Nancy, May and I were very pleased with the turn out, and to all who supported in making this a success.

We would like to thank the Davedi Tea/Café Room convenors Sylvia Antinozzi and Lavinia Eberhardt who led the Ladies Aux. to donate, make, bake, and prepared delicious food to sell during the weekend. Thank you to the ladies who worked the front door as greeters, helped with the packing of food for the Food Bank, and to the men who volunteered their time as our Parking Attendants. Thank you to Phillip, and to Mike & his crew for their assistance with set up and cleaning.

The Food Bank drive was back again and people who attended the show, donated 700 pounds of food, and $1156.85 in cash. All was donated to the North Bay Food Bank. Awesome! What a way to give back to our North Bay community ladies!!
A pleasure to work with my two dedicated convenors Nancy White & May Botchar!

Excellent Teamwork! Well done everyone!

Louisa Defonzo
Past President Ladies Auxiliary
