Ciao, Ciao,

Two Thousand Twenty, 100 Years. Here We Go. Buckle Up. Once again I have to say how amazing it is that we are celebrating 100 years of being part of, and growing with, the Colombo Club. I am sure the founding members would be proud of all our actions to maintain the integrity of their wishes. Everyone needs to make sure they take part in all the activities this coming year. With the Birthday Dinners, Family Dinners, Crab Feeds, Lobster Feeds, Bocce, Golf, Picnic, and Christmas Party, this Club offers more fun for the entire family than any place I can think of. Your support of these events helps keep the Club strong and healthy. Il tuo supporto a questi eventi aiuta a mantenere il club forte e sano.

The Christmas party was another wonderful time to see the eyes of the kids glimmer with joy. My grand kids have no problem having fun at the Club. When I mention we are going to the Colombo Club their faces light up like a Christmas tree with absolute joy. The 34 charter members of the Club would be so happy to see this.

The New Years’ Eve party was fantastic, with food over the top, and dancing into the wee hours of the night. Many people did their part to make this event so wonderful. Look at our schedule of events and get involved in 2020. Making the Club better is all of our responsibilities. Make sure you get the most out of the Club. It is so rewarding not only being at the events, but participating and helping make them happen. Thank you to all the members who put the extra effort into making our events the best of the best. Grazie a tutti i membri che hanno fatto lo sforzo in più per rendere gli eventi il meglio del meglio.

January 11 and 18 bring the joy of crab feeds. Not only do we get to enjoy some of the best crab in the world, but we also get to support our college-bound kids with scholarships. You get to enjoy and help at the same time. Non spesso si arriva a godere e aiutare allo stesso tempo.

I am very excited and can’t wait for the Old Fashioned Family Dinner with spaghetti and meatballs and a pignatta party on January 26. This year Adele, my granddaughter, will be old enough to swing the bat. The first time you crack the Pignatta and see the candy come falling out is a memory that never goes away. La prima volta che si rompe la Pinata e la caramella viene cadere. Un memorio che non sparisce mai.

Over the next year the Club will be selling items to commemorate the 100 years of the Club. One hundred different specialty 100-year items will be sold each month. When they run out that will be it. So, make sure you get your items first before it’s too late. Visit the Club store and make sure your wear the Colombo Club logo proudly.

I wish all of you a very loving and exciting 2020. It will be a year we all should be very proud of. Auguro a tutti un 2020 molto amorevole ed emozionante Un anno di cui tutti dovremmo essere molto orgogliosi.

Celebrare Cento Anni
