A message from the President Dan Dell'Isola

February 2018

Now that the hustle and bustle from the holidays has ended, we are starting to look forward to wrapping up the winter months with an eye toward spring. We are always looking at activities and events to keep our members involved, entertained and offer opportunities to come together to enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow members. If you have an idea for a fun event or activity to hold, please feel welcome to contact a Club officer to help you get the event in motion. We recently had a shuffleboard tournament and are having a Super Bowl party. A tap takeover by the New York Beer Project is coming in February as well! Keep posted for details.

I am now a few months into my term as the president of the Club. It has been quite a learning experience for me. I am leaning on many members for advice and assistance in my mission to keep the Club on its successful path. I am asking for your patience with me as I am still learning many of the policies and procedures of the position. I realize that I still have a lot to learn and I hope that I can count on your help as we go forward because I truly want to see this club thrive. I am only an officer that helps coordinate the processes of running the Club. All of you are needed to help things run smoothly and effectively. Thank you,

Dan Dell’Isola

Once again, the Christmas and New Year holidays have come and gone in a flash. I certainly hope that you all enjoyed the time you spent with friends and family. Hopefully you didn't eat too much of all that delicious food. I would like to wish you all the best in the new year. Winter is here in full force, so please be careful driving and walking on icy surfaces! To all the snowbirds out there, have some warm thoughts for us up here! The new Lotto calendar books for the building improvement fund are now available. Please consider purchasing one. Cost is $30 for the year, with opportunities to win hundreds of dollars. They make great gifts! We have some fun events in the works to help break up the winter doldrums, we'll keep you posted on those. In addition, I would like to thank all the people that helped prepare and serve the spaghetti at our last dinner of the year on December 21. Due to holiday travel and illness, we had to scramble to find help and get everything done, but fortunately the evening was a success once again. Of course, our regular crews do a great job staging our dinners every week. The next spaghetti night will be January 11. Come out and enjoy! Thank to all that helped make Breakfast with Santa so successful. Santa and his elves did a great job with the gifts and decorations! The Renaissance Club, a place where you and your family will always feel welcome.....and Go Bills! 
-Dan Dell’Isola, President

I would like to begin my first note to you by thanking you for your confidence in electing me as the new president of the Renaissance Club. I appreciate your trust in me and I will do my best to continue the success and growth that we have experienced in recent years. I would also like to thank everyone who ran for the open officer's positions that were voted on in our last election. It's great to see that people are willing to step up and donate their time and energy to help the Club succeed. Special recognition and thanks are due to Mack for his hard work and dedication over the last four years as president of the Club. With all of your help, I hope that we will continue on the course that Mack has lead us on.

The holiday season is upon us and our lives get busy and hectic. Remember to try and slow down, remember the reason for the season and enjoy the time you spend with friends and family. May you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The Spaghetti dinners are back after the Thanksgiving hiatus. The all volunteer kitchen staff and servers are doing a great job. Please come by and have some delicious, hot
and freshly prepared Italian specialty dinners. This is one of the primary fundraisers for the Club. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
The Club is always looking for ideas for fun activities that can be held at our Club. Whether it's just to gather and socialize or to raise funds for a particular organization, we are always open to suggestions. Send us your ideas or bring it up to a board member.

Thank You,
