Greetings and Salutations
Our next fundraiser will be our annual fish dinner at St. Andrew’s Catholic School, which will be held on Friday, February 24th - the first Friday of Lent. A special thank you goes out to Jerry Viviano for donating all the food for this event, along with Phil Balano and Anthony Pace who have donated all the beverages. We still need volunteers to help work and once again I will have a signup sheet at our next meeting. By now, all members should have received tickets to sell or purchase as a donation. If possible, please turn in your ticket sales at our February dinner meeting. If you’re unable to attend the meeting, please mail a check to Mike Cucchiara, 1307 NE 86th St., KCMO 64155 for your ticket sales.
We are gearing up for Festa 2012. If you would like to get involved with the planning committee please let our Festa Chairman, Frank Cherrito, know. The Festa will be held at Zona Rosa June 1-3rd. Also, the more corporate sponsorships we are able to secure, the less up front risk/exposure we have, so if you have any leads please pass them on to Frank or I to pursue.
Regarding our first annual membership directory; thank you to everyone who has responded and sent me their current information. As we are still planning to have the directory created and mailed to each member by the end of March, I will be sending one last email requesting updated information by February 24th from those whom have not yet responded.
Lastly, I have been receiving feedback from several individuals - members and potential members - that would like to attend and/or join but travel the majority of Wednesdays. So in the continued hopes of further expanding our membership, I am going to hold 2 - 3 of our monthly meetings on the last Thursday of the month to give these individuals the opportunity to be a part of our great organization.
Look forward to seeing you on the 15th!
