I hope that all had a joyous Christmas with family and loved ones. To all of those who attended this year’s Christmas party, I'm sure you would all agree that it was a spectacular evening. Thanks to our food service crew who sacrificed their time so the rest of us could enjoy a magnificent prime rib dinner.
Please don't forget that scholarship applications need to be turned in by the end of February. The Aiuto foundation has $15,000 to give away.
Our two crab feeds this year are scheduled for February 12th and March 12th. Because of the high cost of crab this year, tickets will be selling for $75. Make sure to call Mike and order your tickets before they sell out.
Dues are due January 1st, so please get them in if you haven't done so already. January meeting is MALE guest night, so if you know any Sicilian men that might be interested, please invite them. February is nomination of officers. I hope to see you in the upcoming months.
I am very excited to update the club on the status of the Auto Foundation, which is the nonprofit charitable organization funded by the Sons of Sicily. We have a new sense of positivity and momentum after adding some quality members to the Board and eliminating some of the negative influences of our past.
This year we will have given away approximately $15,000 to deserving High school graduates going on to higher education. You should receive your Sons of Sicily dues letters in the mail very soon. Please take some time and consider donating to the Auito Foundation. This money will be used to fund our scholarships. Thank you for your time.
