STATE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I hope this message finds everyone safe and in good health. Hurricane Ian has passed and unfortunately has left a path of destruction on the west coast from Sanibel Island and Ft. Meyers northeast across the state and also impacted the eastern coastline northward. Our thoughts and prayers to everyone who were affected by this terrible hurricane.
We contacted most lodge presidents to see how they and their lodge families fared the hurricane and there were no reports of personal injuries, but some did get property damage.
Our Trimester At Sea meeting is coming up the 14th through the 17th of October and then we can conduct our business and spend some time unwinding and relax a little with fellow members from across the state.
This printing is prior to the Oct. meeting and I’m being optimistic it took place without any delays from any further weather conditions. The agendas and reports have been emailed to the Council.
OSIDA is celebrating its 117th anniversary of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America.
The next meeting after the October at Sea meeting will be February 4-6, 2023, be at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Orange City and at the Deltona Sons and Daughters of Italy Lodge. The planned Saturday dinner at the Deltona Lodge will be way above expectations.
Details will be in my November message and also posted on our website.
Get the word out about our great organization and what we have and are doing in our communities and talk to those Italians who are just waiting for you to invite them.
