UNICO NATIONAL- Kansas City Chapter, Inc

Dear UNICO member,

Back to Business! We have much to be proud of in 2010, but the true test lies ahead of us. There is so much we have accomplished, however there is more we still can achieve. We all can agree the foundation of our group and future success will come from membership. If we can continue to grow our membership, more doors will open and more good will be done for those who need it. I'd like to set a personal goal for each member to sign up one new member before our Festa. This gives us until June 3rd to reach our goal. At the very least, Joe Nastasi will be pleased with the additional choices he'll have for volunteers.

As many of you know, the UNICO National Board of Directors Mid-Western & Western Regional Meetings for 2011 will be held in Kansas City. The Intercontinental Kansas City, at the Plaza, will host the events that will take place March 23-27, 2011. To be chosen as the city that will host this event is quite the honor. Past UNICO President Andre DiMino had pushed for this after his visit at last year's Festa. I have attached a registration form that you will need to mail to UNICO National if you would like to attend the meetings or ceremonies. Current UNICO National President, Chris DiMattio, has asked me to do my best to get as many members as I can to attend the event. Meetings are in the day, but the awards ceremony and dinner is Saturday evening. A reception will be held on Friday evening. Saturday evening will feature the Marconi Award Dinner Gala. Your spouse is invited to attend both nights.

Moving on to new business, our next fundraiser will be or annual fish dinner at St. Andrew's Catholic School, from 5-8pm. The fish dinner will be held on March 11, 2011. The UNICO-St. Andrew's Fish Dinner has been a long time tradition for many Unicans. With your support, we will keep this tradition going. UNICO has committed to purchase a large statue that will be placed in the church. We will need volunteers to help work this event. We ask all UNICO members to sell 10 tickets or purchase the tickets as a donation. Ticket prices are $7 for an adult and $3 for children. I'll be handing out tickets at or next dinner meeting. If you're unable to attend the next meeting, please look for the tickets in the mail.

I still believe that Unicans that eat together will stay together!
