Our grand 100th anniversary month of August 2020 may not have had all the celebrations we were planning to have, but now we can look forward to celebrating our 100 + 1 anniversary in 2021. Even though there is not really anything new to report in September, we still have some activities happening at the Club. I would like to thank all the individuals who have helped the Club by purchasing merchandise from the website and attending our three book and merchandise sales in August. Many of you came to help the Club financially by purchasing merchandise, wine and our 100th anniversary history book. We have sold many of the 100th anniversary books, and I must say what a nice book it is. Rich Puppione, Thank You so much, you have captured the true meaning of the Colombo Club in this book. Rich Puppione, Grazie mille, hai catturato il vero significato del Colombo Club in questo libro. If you have not purchased yours yet, it is a wonderful look back at our club’s history and shows what a special place the Colombo Club is. Those three sales days in August were so successful that we will be offering you the chance to come to the Club again on Wednesday, October 7, Saturday, October 17 or Thursday, October 29. The Club will be open on these three days in October from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. (see the flyer in this newsletter.)
With really nothing else to do, I was able to venture out on an RV trip to some of the best national parks in the world. Four weeks driving around with my wife Joanmarie. One thing is for sure this pandemic has helped set a new norm. We have had more family time, true quality family time than the rush world before was allowing. Maybe we will all look back and appreciate the reset.
Abbiamo avuto più tempo in famiglia, tempo di vera qualità in famiglia poi il mondo di corsa prima stava permettendo. Forse ci guarderemo tutti indietro e apprezzeremo il reset.
The board will be meeting on Sept 15th. We will discuss where we are at financially, and options we have in front of us to help the Club spring back to life. I know everyone is excited about coming back to normal, but for now we have to wait and see. So che tutti sono entusiasti di tornare alla normalità, ma per ora dobbiamo aspettare e vedere.
In the meantime, please keep going to the website and purchase merchandise and wear the Colombo Club logo proudly. The face masks, hats, shirts, license plate frames, and history book, etc., are all items that will help bring needed cash flow to the Club.
Hope you’re all well. Spero che il tuo tutto bene.
Celebrare Cento Anni.
