It is with truly mixed emotions that I sit down to write my final message to you all. Mali e beni a lu so fini veni. We have indeed had some struggles and difficult days, but I believe we have emerged stronger than ever. In the end, I am proud of where we are, and am I grateful to each of you for the faith and trust you showed me. Being president of this club has been an honor. So, I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to each member of the Sons of Sicily Board for all the support and guidance. I also owe a special thank you to Karen Haverling and Judy Taormina who literally saved our Women’s Club, and who along with their new Board have created a thriving and successful new club. Congratulations ladies!!!
As if I needed another example of how well things are going lately, we added five new members last month and we had a second very successful Crab Feed. Once again, Mike Maltese worked his magic to organize and manage a hugely successful night serving over 400 guests. So, a huge thanks to Mike and the entire crew of volunteers who made the night so successful and profitable.
Finally, I want to congratulate Dave Geraci, our new President. Dave, along with his new Board, will be sworn in at our April meeting which will be a ladies guest night. Our cooking crew will be working up a special dinner, so please plan to attend.
Once again, thank you for the privilege and honor of leading this amazing club, and for the support and kind words over the last two years.
