The Club Celebrates Columbus Day with a New Float
There's something special and uniquely Italian-American about the celebration of Columbus Day in Little Italy. Our Club, once again, joined the parade on Monday, October 14th and tossed over 1,000 red, white and green strings of beads to the crowd from a brand new float. Catching our beads has become a favorite among those in attendance at the parade.  
There was a great turnout of Club members who all enjoyed the day. Many thanks to those who participated. It was a great fun!
The float looked great and it couldn't happen with a lot of help from a lot of members.  Tom Romeo designed the float and managed construction.   
Thanks to Finelli Architectural Iron and Stair for the use of their trailer.
Thanks to Mike Rhea, Brett Neff, Bob Yodice, Tom DiCarro, Tim DiCarro, Sam Merolla, Don DeRoia, Rich Alaimo and Frank Bonsignore who worked on building the float before parade day.
Gentlemen the result was worth the effort. The float looked great. 

Some great minds making magic!
A great turnout for the parade. A good time was had by all.
It took several days and a lot of work but in the end it was worth it!
Buon Compleanno!
