Newsletter: AMICI D' ITALIA VOCE January, vol. 3 issue 1 So brothers and sisters, we celebrated another Christmas together and welcomed in a new year. The year promises to be one of great interest to all of us. This year our January meeting will focus on nominations for new officers. This will be an important meeting so please make arrangements to attend if possible. Our monthly meeting is scheduled for January 18th at 6:30 p.m. at the Five Star Veterans Center. The meal provided by our social committee will be baked ziti with meatballs and bread. The salad, as always, is provided by “The Sensi of salad masters” Frank Pupura. If you intend to come to the meeting, please contact Margie (904-744-1567) or Mary (904-642-7768) so that they may know how much food to make. Normally, our annual membership fee is due in January. I am suspending the collection of annual dues until after our next meeting. Happy Birthday The month of January is divided by two signs of the zodiac; Capricorn and Aquarius. January also celebrates the beginning of a new year in China. It marks the end of the year of the Boar and the beginning of the year of the Rat. Our January birthday babies are Annette Guarino (Jan.9th), Donna Auger (Jan. 11th), Paula Stover (Jan. 13th), Gummer Moya (Jan. 22nd), and Julie Franciskato (Jan. 31st). Happy Birthday one and all! Have the best birthday ever! Restaurant Night The Amici d' Italia Restaurant Night is scheduled for January 30th at 6:30 p.m. at the Olive Garden restaurant, 9465 Atlantic Blvd. Jacksonville 32225.
