Club President’s Message: March 2020

Ciao, Ciao.

It is now time to get your reservations in for the 100th anniversary dinner August 22 and August 29. Presently we are close to being sold out. If you wait much longer you will miss your chance to be at the Gala 100 Year Celebration of the Colombo Club.

March is a special month as I married an Irish gal.  St Patrick’s Day is always fun. I look forward to Joanmarie cooking her famous corned beef and cabbage. It’s incredible. Our cooks at the Club are equally as talented when cooking corned beef, cabbage and pasta pesto. The birthday and family dinners will serve this great meal this month.  They are always a member favorite.  These dinners sell out quickly, but remember if you call and it is sold out, leave your name as people always adjust their reservations, which makes more seats available.  Queste cene si esauriscono rapidamente, ma ricorda che se chiami ed è esaurito lascia il tuo nome poiché le persone modificano sempre le loro prenotazioni e diventano disponibili più posti.

We were a bit let down after the Superbowl, but I am sure we all had a great time with our friends and family coming together to laugh and cry, but I am sure we all ate very well. The Nicora family always says, if there is one thing that’s going to happen today at our house, you will not go home hungry.  La famiglia Nicora dice sempre, se c’è una cosa che accadrà oggi a casa nostra, non andrai a casa affamato.

March is also a time when we need to say Thank You to the old country Italians who were the founders of the Kingdom of Italy.  The Day of Unity is March 17th 1861.  At the Colombo Club in this our 100th year we thank and celebrate our founders, and the love that we have created and received by our family and fellow members.  Marzo è anche un momento in cui dobbiamo ringraziare gli italiani di campagna che erano i fondatori del Regno d’Italia. Il giorno dell’unità 17 marzo 1861.

Lobsters are at the Club this month.  The Lobster Feed always sells out, so get your reservations in now. Thank Cyril Bonanno, our chairman of the board,  and member Bob Tucknott for starting this tradition and all the hard work.

August is coming quickly. Make sure you keep your eyes on the newsletters and flyers for all the great events that are going to be happening that month. These will be memorable events for the entire family. There are dinners, dancing, and games for the kids so many things to do. Make sure you keep your entire month open to enjoy our entire Colombo Club family getting together.    

The first 100th anniversary shirts oare now available along with the commemorative desk clocks and wine goblets (there will also be commorative wine glasses for adults at the anniversary dinners).    There are only 100 of each item we sell each month, when they’re gone, they will turn into collector’s items.  Have a great March and sit back and watch our beautiful Bay Area blossom into spring. Vi auguriamo una grande marzo e sedetevi e guardate la nostra bellissima Bay Area sbocciare in primavera.

Celebrare Cento Anni

Nick Nicora
