I hope you are all staying cool and smoke free. Ken and I have missed many Reno Aces games because of the unhealthy air. We are hoping to get to the rest before the season is over.
Ken and I visited the Gold Country Lodge #2705 to celebrate their 25th Anniversary, with President Jim Silveira, First Lady Barbara and so many of their officers and members. The food and company were wonderful.
I want to remind everyone that, as President, I would like
Dear Brothers and Sisters.
Hoping you are all well and safe. It has been a challenging year, but we have continued with satisfactory progress despite the difficulties.
We had our State Grand Convention, and installation of state officers. Lodges are back to holding their monthly meetings and planning lodge social events.
Even with the COVID-19 pandemic some good has come out of it with all the technology we had to learn to get thru this world crisis!
I am happy to announce that I am a National Delegate for the term 2021 – 2023 and will be attending the National convention in Tampa, Fl. in October 2021.
National Chairman of the Electoral Committee, Past National President Joseph Sciame and committee members asked the delegates to attend on Saturday, July 17, 2021, a tutorial meeting at 11:00 am giving detailed
I want to take this opportunity to say that I did not realize how much this would help me become a better member by taking this position. In talking to numerous members, I really see the dedication that many of our members have for the Sons and Daughters of Italy. Summer is almost over, and Fall is upon us. I hope all the Lodges are finding their way through this Pandemic safely. I’ve been in contact with most of our Lodges in the North and I find it exhilarating that the Lodges are getting together and starting to plan functions for the rest of the year. I hope the fires are starting to calm down and we can enjoy our lives again.
I want to give a shout out to my brothers and sisters especially Richard Negro, President of the Weed Lodge. We had a great conversation last month and I am looking forward to going back to visit their Lodge. I’ve made a multitude of friends over the years in OSDIA, but I just made a new one in Ernie Giono. He is a dedicated President of The Cesare Battisti
I would like to introduce myself as the new Chairperson of the Royal Pageant. I am Pamela Ricci, President of the Cristoforo Colombo Lodge #1534 in Reno Nevada. I know many of you from past conventions especially our last one we held live here at the Atlantis Resort. I hope I can count on your support for these next couple of years while keep the tradition of making this a wonderful experience for our youth.
I want to thank President Barbara for appointing me as chairperson of this important committee, but I can’t do it alone. It will be very difficult to follow in Eva Lavezzari’s footsteps
Sisters and Brothers, here we are over 17 months into this pandemic and we don’t seem to be getting anywhere. Stay safe, get your vaccine and wear a mask and soon, we just might be ending this crisis.
August 8th passed and it was to be our first post pandemic dinner meeting at our new location but at the last minute, with 103 reservations, we had to cancel. A real disappointment, and many emails and phone calls on my part. I am optimistic that we can meet in October but then, again,
Roma Lodge holds its Junior Member Night at the August meeting each year. The lodge has about 60 junior members and over 20 attended the meeting. They conducted the opening and closing ceremonies, enjoyed getting a lot of back-to
