Sons of Italy Newsletter
Brothers and Sisters,
We are almost at the 2015 half-way point and our agenda has us going full speed ahead. As you know we get together the 2nd Thursday of the month, and in the past we did not meet in July and August …that has now changed and we will meet year round, and the cooks are committed for both months! Our June meeting-social is next Thursday, June 11th and we will be presenting our three scholarship winners. Lee Ann Codispoti and her cooking team will be in the kitchen and they have a very special meal planned, so make your reservations now to guarantee you a seat.
“Sons of Italy Night” at the Clippers Game
Also, keep in mind Monday, July 27th is “Sons of Italy Night” at the Clippers game. We have 100 tickets blocked and still have 60 plus available … hopefully a few more of you can make it as it was a lot of fun and very entertaining last year.
Concert That Never Was
We also are on track to reach our goal to have 500 people attend the August 22nd “Concert That Never Was” at Villa Milano. We have 150 plus people so far and that is just from word of mouth, our advertising campaign will begin after Independence Day and should be the catalyst to meet or exceed our goal.
While we fell short with the Fiat raffle and we had to convert to an all cash prize raffle we had 16 happy people who took home cash! By the way the Lodge made a little money as well. Winners are listed in this newsletter.
We have some other exciting news to announce and will do so at our June 11th meeting/social. Come and celebrate being Italian or come and celebrate with your Italian friends!
