Message From the State President

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.

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.

The Royal Pageant is on for 2022!

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,

How easy it is to say “I’m glad I got my flu and Covid-19 vaccinations; how hard it is to say “I regret not getting my shots”. Make it easy on yourself, family, friends, neighbors … get it done. General George Washington himself
