Our May 73rd Anniversary dinner was a terrific evening! We had a wonderful prime rib or chicken wellington dinner. The food was fantastic, as usual. Our caterer did another outstanding job. The members that helped put this event together created a beautifully decorated hall. Without each and every one of them, our events would not be as successful. We would like to thank each of the lodges and state officers that attended our anniversary: Anaheim Lodge, Dolly Sinatra Lodge, Joanne Coccia Lodge, La Costa Dei Fiori Lodge and Pugliese Lodge. The state officers that attended were: Western Foundation Trustee Joseph LaPorta, Royal court of The Golden Lion Sadie Tamburine, State 2nd Vice President Mark Vaona and representing our State President Manny Finazzo (State Orator).
Our honorees Betty Sandroni and Susana Grebe had their family in attendance. Betty and Susana have been a member of Sons of Italy for the past 21 years. Betty and Susana have been a big part of the lodge by helping out at dinner dances and where ever needed. Susana also supported the lodge as sentinel. They are always there when something needs to be taken care of.
At our July meeting we had the pleasure of presenting our scholarship to one young student from our local high school. We also had the pleasure of presenting another scholarship to one young student at the June convention.
