I can only imagine 99 years ago what the founding fathers of the Colombo Club were doing for Thanksgiving. It would seem a much simpler time than we have today. The world since then has changed in many ways, but the Colombo Club membership still holds the thanks for what we have near to our heart. As President I have witnessed numerous acts that make the Club what it is today. To the Board of Directors and the other Officers of the Club a much appreciated “Thank You” for what you do. Al Consiglio di Amministrazione e agli Ufficiali del Club un grazie molto apprezzato per quello che fate.
The membership at large still brings the true value of family to the Club. To observe week after week month after month laughter and love that explodes in the basement of the Club, it’s just amazing to witness. It reminds me of my Nuno while building a home on Miles Ave and hosting many gatherings in the basement of the house with family and friends. The Colombo Club is still far and away the friendliest place I know of anywhere outside of my own home. I truly believe that our founding fathers are looking down on us with pride and honor that we have kept the emotion alive even in a different world. Credo davvero che i nostri padri fondatori ci stiano guardando con orgoglio e onore che abbiamo mantenuto viva l’emozione anche in un mondo diverso. That is something to be thankful for.
This year’s election for board and officers is this month. Make sure you come to the Club and place your vote. Members of this Club need to remember that you are owners of this Club and your participation in running this Club is a must. As stated above many people put many hours a month helping. All of you don’t have to dedicate hours, but a few times a year we would appreciate it if you did. I would like to ask once again that the membership call and make reservations for our Assembly Dinner November 19th. This year we will have tortellini brodo and bagna cauda, an amazing dinner, but more importantly you can learn about the health of the Club financially and talk about and participate with discussions on future developments of this great Club.
November also has one of our best dinners with the Scalise family-inspired long-standing menu salsiccia with peppers. It always sells out, so I hope you have already made your reservations. If not, you should do so today. Speaking of great dinners, if you have not attended a family dinner lately (and even if you have) you do not want to miss this month’s family dinner. The menu is tortellini and chicken scaloppini. Where else can you go out to an all inclusive wonderful dinner for only $18 per person for you and your wife or friend. Bring your friends as guests for only $22 per person. Oh yes, don’t forget that includes dancing afterwards.
As we enter the holiday season let’s all once again be sure to thank all around us who have given us this amazing life. Mentre entriamo nella Stagione delle Vacanze, tutto ci rallegra ancora una volta grazie a te che ci hanno dato questa vita incredibile che possiamo godere. Thank You!!
