Greetings from Petaluma!
We had a small group for our dinner meeting this month. The members who attended had a delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner, thanks to Ed Santero and his kitchen cooks and crew. Thanks too, to those members who helped in any way and who made the desserts. I lost my notes from the meeting and being a senior citizen, cannot remember everything that went on.
Fred Schram spoke about the Fish Hatchery and invited members to go on a tour. Reservations need to be made to do so.
Dave Biggio won the monthly raffle.
Roma Lodge # 1573 is celebrating their 90th Anniversary this year. The lodge presents milestone certificates of membership to members celebrating in 5-year increments and those with 50 or more years as members of Roma Lodge. A celebration was scheduled for April however due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak the lodge will be moving the event to a later date. Those members:
First of all I hope this article finds everyone well and safe. This is a very hard time our country in facing, actually world is facing. Fortunately we have family to rely on and be with. Please check in with our elderly members who are by themselves and please let us all listen to our elected government officials. Please everyone stay safe and if you need anything reach out to your fellow members. Many of our members are older and they should not spend much time around groups. BE SAFE!!.I’m hoping the next article I write for the Il leone will be more upbeat.
We were just able to complete our Grand Council meeting with the use of a conference call and webinar. Thank you all that participated, I personally think things went well and we were able to get our agenda done in a timely manner. Thank you Mark and Lori Rossi for all your help in making this successful, I appreciate the feedback I received from the officers and members. Thank you for your support.
