The Auxiliary congratulates the Colombo Club men on their recent 99th Anniversary on August 17, 2019. The dinner celebration was a lovely event.
On July 27, the Italian American Federation selected their Queen for the year 2020. Erica Del Vigna, who was sponsored by the Colombo Club and CC Auxiliary, was chosen by three judges, who were not part of any the Italian clubs. Her court includes four princesses from other clubs: Hannah Mattioda, Riley Accurso, Mary Mittone, and Tayler Hunterburg. Congratulations to the Queen and her Court.
Mindee Lilley, our current queen, has done a fabulous job. She has attended all the Club anniversaries, so far. She is a beautiful example of what an IAF Queen should represent. The Colombo Club and CC Auxiliary were honored to have sponsored her.
The Italian Clubs Picnic will take place on August 31, 2019 at the Martinez Marina. This is located behind the Bocce Ball courts. Gates open at 9 am. Come early for close parking.
