Our June general meeting will be our Scholarship Dinner meeting. We will meet on June 9th instead of our usual meeting date on the third Saturday of the month (June 16th).       


Our scholarship award winner Mr. Nicholas Riscigno will be attending along with the members of his family i.e. parents and sister. Nicholas submitted an excellent application and essay. Nicholas' ancestors were from Castel Castagina (great great grandmother) and Capo d' Orlando Sicily (great great grandfather). Let us show them our hospitality Italian style.

Reception to follow at the Italian American Club 2838 Westberry Rd. Jacksonville, 32223. If your intent is to attend please RSVP Margie (904-744-1567) so that Moe has an idea as to how many people to prepare for.


Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers in our lodge. Children with a father in the household are less likely to break the law, and drop out of school. They pursue healthy relationships, hold down high paying jobs and are more likely to have higher IQ scores than their peers by age 3. Pat yourself on the back Dads. You did a good job!


There will be No restaurant nightfor June.


The month of July is our summer break. Remember, we do not meet during the month of July. Enjoy your summer and be careful the hot weather is here!
