Thank you to everyone who came out to Tamarac for our annual mixer this evening, we had a great turnout and a lot of fun.  Thank you very much to Skip and Sandy Pangle for their hospitality, opening the restaurant just for CIAO and for all the great food! 

Pasta dinner tickets were distributed to members present. A sign up sheet was also available for pasta dinner helpers.  If you have not yet signed up, we need you! Please let us know what times you are available and what areas you would like to work. We will need people the day before for setup and all shifts and all areas on Pasta Dinner Day (April 13th!). Shifts are as early as 8am and as late as closing and cleanup, usually done around 7pm.  To sign up or for more information, please contact any of our CIAO officers or board members. As always, if you have children or grandchildren who are old enough, or friends who would like to help out, we welcome all the help we can get!

Elizabeth Laurita's name was drawn for the cash prize, but since she was not present the pot will be up to $200 for our next general membership meeting in February.  Tom Lucente,  Attorney and Night Editor/Opinion Columnist for the Lima News, who has dual Italian and American citizenship will speak on the process of obtaining dual citizenship.  We hope to see you there!
