As fast as our year concluded, we kicked off our 65th year with our Installations of Officers. Our newest LtGov, Carol Masciello was on hand to conduct the ceremony, as we welcomed Kerrie Hansen as our President. Also installed were Pres-Elect Tony Sauro, 1st VP Walter Sabolboro, Secretary Debbie Kueber, Treasurers Dave Fitzgerald and Bob Kueber, plus in members of the incoming Board of Directors. There were many Happy Dollars for the coming milestone year.
Our annual salute to all things Italian was the theme of this week's meeting. We met at a new location, the party room at "A Sprinkle of Fun" on Myrtle Ave. Chairwomen Fran Cottone and her committee put together an excellent program, with great food from Grace's Pizza, generous donations of wine and pastries from our membership, and raffle prizes as well. Plus, we celebrated the birthday of our new President Kerrie! The Happy Dollars were flying from "everyone who is Italian, and from those who wish they were". Pictures are in the Gallery.
