Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo! This is a great time of year.
I want to personally thank all the members of the Club voting me in for another year as president of this one-of-a-kind, outstanding club. I take this responsibility very seriously and I hope I will represent you and the Club very well into the new year and through our 100th Anniversary celebration. Prendo molto seriamente questa responsabilità e spero di rappresentare te e il club molto bene nel nuovo anno e durante la celebrazione del 100 anniversario.
This month I am looking forward to all the smiling little faces of our young upcoming members at the annual Christmas Party on December 15. I want to thank the Auxiliary and the many members of our Club for all the hard work they do making this event a one-of-a-kind memory for all our kids. I can remember getting a transistor radio when I was 6 years old. Just putting in the 9 volt battery was memorable, then listening to the Raider game with my brother Al and my dad Vince.
Make sure you make your reservation for the Colombo Club Auxiliary’s 82nd Anniversary on December 7. We all need to stand and congratulate their remarkable achievement. Un risultato straordinario, dobbiamo tutti alzarci in piedi e congratularci con il loro acuto.
New Year’s Day takes us into 2020 and the 100th anniversary year. The 100th Anniversary parties will be events not to miss. Still hard to believe. Make sure you make your reservations early for the New Year’s Eve Party. The menu is prime rib and raviolis. It will be a great dinner and a wonderful night of dancing under the balloon drop.
There are only two birthday dinners in December, so make sure you make one of them. Grab some of your friends, celebrate member birthdays and the Christmas holiday. There is no better way to celebrate our good fortune. Non c’è modo migliore per celebrare la nostra fortuna. As we move into the new year make sure you personally recognize the cooks when you see them, John Tandi, Bill Cendak, Ed Ciminello,Ben Ratto, Rick Caula, Danny Foster, Tony Tedeschi, Joe Guerrero, Jerry Pittore and especially, Kitchen Manger Ken Decrosta. They are all truly the heart and soul of our Club. They represent who we are, and what we do – feeding the family. Sono tutti veramente il cuore e l’anima del nostro club e rappresentano chi siamo e cosa facciamo, dando da mangiare alla famiglia.
I hope you all have a great Merry Christmas, and very happy New Year. Get set for the best year the Colombo Club has ever had. 100 Years of celebration!!! Spero che abbiate un buon Natale e un felice anno nuovo. Quindi preparatevi per l’anno migliore che il Colombo Club abbia mai avuto. 100 anni di festa!!!
