With the beginning of a new year, I am raring to get back to my Sons and Daughters of Italy family.
Your Vice-Presidents are still sending emails to your Lodge Presidents telling them what other Lodges are doing during this time. I think the best way to keep you all engaged is through communication. Without communication we are all disconnected from our Order. I love the way some of our Lodge Presidents are posting on social media interesting facts from Italy or information on our Order. I know of several Lodges that have increased members during this time by reaching out to friends that may be interested. Remember the words of our Membership Chair of the North, Louie Lodi, “JUST ASK”. That holds true even during a pandemic. If you are speaking with someone who is not a member, remember why you joined and share. We will be back together soon to share the fraternity that is the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy,
Let’s all hope for a blessed and healthy New Year and a time to get back together again.
I am finding it hard, at this point to find something to write about that might interest you. Staying home to stay safe is leaving a large hole in my experiences. I can only write about this time at home so much before it becomes a major repetition. I’ve baked my bread, made Christmas Pizzelles, made pasta, braciola, pizza from scratch. Cleaned closets and draws and did some renovating in the house. There is nothing left!
Will someone please get us all a couple of doses of this vaccine so we can continue with life? I can only hope and pray that 2021 will be better and we will be together soon.
Till next month
