THE PRESIDENT: We had a good meeting last month. I’d like to thank, Rev. Vincent Lapomarda of Holy Cross for his presentation. I think we all learned something during that presentation we did not know, or fondly remembered that that we did know Please members, regular, social and bocce; I ask that you contact Maria Sciannameo below to attend our Christmas party, celebrate the holidays with friends, meet new ones and show support of our Lodge events with your presence. Strength is in numbers and we have the ability to be there in numbers. I look forward to working with all of you and leading our Lodge forward. I am still looking for a Golf Tournament chairman? If anyone can help and organize this event please contact me.
ELECTION:Sister Stella Fiore’s position with our lodge needs to be filled. Sister Stella is a State officer.
