To My Sisters & Brothers of OSDIA,
February was a busy month. I attended events at the Redding, Chico, and Weed Lodges. The meals were Crab-solutely amazing! On February 10th, I traveled to Redding for their famous Crab Feast. There were 400 people in attendance. The raffle prizes were unbelievable, and the night was fun! The Lodge pulled out all the stops and returned the next night to host 400 more people for a second night of crab. On February 16th I installed the new officers at the Vincenzo Bellini Lodge in Chico. It was a great meeting with all the members. The President, Tony George is doing a great job in Chico. On the 18th I traveled to the Big Town of Weed for their Crab Feed. The meal was Clawsome and just Crabulous! It’s heartwarming to see that the people of Weed came out to support the Sons and Daughters of Italy and their event. I had a memorable time at all the events and it’s wonderful to see that our Sons and Daughters of Italy Lodges are thriving and bringing people together.
In March we are having our Grand Council meeting in Southern California. I will report in April on what went on at the council meeting and how we are coming along in locating a new Grand Lodge building.
Ciao for now.
