The Italian / American Club
April 2018 marked the end of the season for this dynamic club. It was yet another fabulous night packed with entertainment, and more benefits to the Wounded Warriors Project, 50-50 raffle, terrific food, dancing and fun !
The 'doowop kids' provided the music for dancing and listening and of course some great singing to memorable songs of the past and recent past !
Joe is looking like he is doing a Frank Sinatra, but there's no music and no song this time, instead he is thanking all who support the club, because much of that support helps the Wounded Warriers.
We were honored to hear the personal story of a member of the military, who had benefited from the donations of many and the support from the club. He was accompanied by his wife and his delightful little son.
Here, Tony is handing over our gift to our warrior guest, and below was a very special event that provided a pause in the proceedings.
All our own vets were invited onto the ballroom floor, almost three dozen. It was a very emotional experience, to see so many and everybody joined in to sing 'I'm Proud To Be An American'
Here, Harvey Feldman and his lovely wife were spotted having a great time on the dance floor
Our Entertainer chose to sing the song 'Sweet Lorraine' and who better to dedicate the song to but our own Lorraine Allen. It was a lovely, sleepy way to bring the proceedings towards a close.
September saw a very enjoyable evening at the Italian / American Club....with fresh pizzas, drinks, and dance music from Ed Slater. This event was a meeting for members that incorporated a fundraising event.
We were honored by the presence of a Marine Vet who explained the work of the 'Wounded Warriors' fund.

And you don't have to be Italian!
And so into the New Year....
On January 10th, the Dinner Dance was held with entertainment and dance music provided by 'Ray and the Rayletttes', a family with a very talented daughter.
We are so fortunate to have a beautiful dance floor that is so well used at our Club events.
February saw the 'Meeting' of this very lively Club, which mixed an evening of formality, food, dance and getting together, and of course lots of Fun !!
