  As I write this I am at Villa Roma attending the annual convention. We are pleased that Anthony Ippolito will soon be confirmed as the new State Deputy. A special thanks to all who helped during the Easter egg hunt at St. Anthony's church. PGK Paul Kahl and his wife Lisa were assisted by PGK Steve Bermudez, his wife Amy, my wife Dorothy and myself in stuffing over 1000 eggs. Elections are quickly approaching. Thursday, June 1st we will be electing a slate for 2023-2024. 3481 has four positions up for election and Kenmah has two. If you intend on running for any position you must submit a letter stating exactly what position you intend to run for. In addition for 3481 spots you must specify if you are running for one of the three year terms or the one year term. Also, of importance we have back to back meetings on May 4th and May 11th. This is due to May 18th being a holy day of obligation. The 70's & 80's dance hosted by PGK SK Gene Peluso was a lot of fun. Prizes for best costume went to Steven Bermudez and Gene Peluso. Congratulations to the fat farm winner Pat Doherty! He lost 5.5 percent of his total body weight. Catalina Guttilla is still accepting reservations for the Mother's Day brunch. Please see attached flier. We are also having a cigar/steak event on Saturday June 3rd. See me, Don Morgan, for details or check the attached flier. Bingo as always is in need of help please help if you're free on Wednesday evening come down and help out.
