Dear Friends

View April's Newsletter.

Our chapter received some good news about one of our members, Larry Janacaro recently received a kidney from his daughter and wishes to share that he is doing great and hasn't felt this good in 14 years. He wanted everyone to know how much he appreciated all the calls, prayers and calls that were sent.

FESTA! FESTA! FESTA! May 31st, June 1st & 2nd @ Zona Rosa...We are about six weeks out and things are looking fabulous . . .

Our Festa committee continues to work diligently to bring everything together. They have all done a excellent job and would like to personally thank each one of you for your hard work, dedication and time. No one person can do this. All that is requested from the rest of our chapter is that you come out and support the Festa and if possible, volunteer for a shift. It means a lot seeing our fellow members at the Festa and hopefully you will also feel proud knowing that we are the ONLY chapter of UNICO that puts on the Italian Festa in its entirety!

If you haven't already, there is still time for you to purchase a banner for your business, your family or to remember a loved one, and after the Festa, it is yours too keep. The price for the 2 ft x 2 ft banner is $100 - the deadline is May 10th. For more information, please contact Shellie at 816.589.3473. There will also be order forms at next weeks meeting.

Thursday, May 30th, Cascone's North is hosting the 3rd annual Festa kick-off dinner. The night will include a four-course gourmet dinner and feature 3 young, very talented female Italian American vocalists, starting at 5:50 PM (you are welcome to come earlier for drinks).

Later, the Friday night Festival headliners, The Bronx Wanderers, will be singing some “street corner do whop”. WOW! Cost-$50 per person (does not include drinks) For reservations please call Cascone’s 816-454-7977. It is a great way to kick off the weekend!

In closing, many of you have asked where we rank in nationally with our membership...I can tell you that we are currently #5:

  1. Scranton - 358
  2. Nutley - 142
  3. Keystone - 141
  4. Hackensack - 140
  5. Kansas City - 128

With only a few short months remaining in my presidency, there are a few things I would still like to accomplish, getting our membership to #2 is one of them - we are only 14 great members away! I’m honored to lead this great organization which truly defines “Service above Self”.

Please continue to bring a guest as often as possible as membership is the foundation to our future success and growth. Remember, our strength comes as a group - we ALL joined UNICO for a reason - together we can continue to make a difference!

Bene a te stesso,

Michael Mange
