PASTA DINNER APRIL 28
President John Hambrose said: “I want to offer my most sincere thanks to those of you who helped make this year’s Pasta Dinner a tremendous success.
We served hundreds of meals and made many new friends in the community. Most importantly, this service project helped many of our members get to know each other better…everyone had a great time and our team exhibited nothing but cooperation and fellowship throughout the day. Special thanks must be offered to “Pasta” Joe Pagnani whose dedication to our club has turned this fundraiser into a well-oiled machine and John “Ragu” Regula who, with his daughter Sarah, spent their day preparing food and making our guests feel welcome. I am thankful to everyone who helped or supported our event in any way including Chef Schiavone and our former member Sam, who dedicated their entire Sunday to supporting our club. Chef’s sauce and pasta again received rave reviews and if what we did for the community wasn’t enough, we invited St. Francis Kitchen to pick up the leftovers so that our dinner may feed the less privileged in our community this week.”

It’s not sure what Mike was doing with his….
