WIDOWS AND CHILDRENS LUNCHEON
SUNDAY DECEMBER 22ND


WEST PALM BEACH R.O.M.E.O. VENUE CHANGE

Due to overcrowding on the patio at Duffy’s in West Palm Beach, I have pre-arranged our luncheon for Noon, Friday March 8, 2019 at The Sterling McClellan American Legion Post 142, 171 SW 2nd St, Pompano Beach. FL, 33060.  Tele # 954-942-2448.

It is a big venue with two dining rooms, a Tiki Bar and big indoor bar. There is also a big kitchen with a staff prepared to accommodate our needs and has a varied menu to choose from with prices of $8.00 and less. That includes not only the bar menu, but specialty items as well. Full bar available with friendly bartenders, and accustomed to large crowds. The servers will also run individual tabs, so there will be no monies collected. Everyone will be on their own. Eat whatever you want, drink whatever you want, and simply enjoy each other.

Because of the layout of the venue, everyone can mingle freely with one another, and there will be no rush to leave. I know that it is further away for some folks, but the distance from Duffy’s is about 30 to 40 minutes. Florida’s Turnpike and I-95 are nearby this new location, and because of this new venue we may get more people attending. Please do not hesitate to give me your opinion on this change of venue. I will send additional info as well as photos as time nears the event. Thank you all... Andy Moschetto!

I can be reached at 561-516-0364 or at my email palmhawk@comcast.net .

I you are planning on attending, please ley Andy know ASAP so he can get an idea as to how many people will be attending. Contact Andy at the above phone number or email address

2019 FLORIDA REUNION DATES ARE SET

JUNE 21st-23RD

The Reunion Committee is pleased to announce that we have completed negotiations with the newly renovated Daytona Beach Resort for our 2019 Reunion.  The common areas have been upgraded, as well as, new carpeting in most of the rooms. We want to thank those who took the time after the 2018 reunion to provide us with feedback.  That information was extremely helpful in our negotiations. We are happy to advise you that while a number of changes were made to make your stay more pleasant in 2019, they were accomplished with virtually no change in cost. The following are just a few;

  • A dedicated, in house, phone number for our reservations will be provided.
  • Additional clerks will be provided on Friday to expedite the check in process. Just a reminder that the official check in time is 4:00 PM. Under no circumstances, will the hotel allow a guest to check in early, if the room has not been cleaned.
  • Additional bartenders will be provided at the Tiki Bar and in the dining room. The Tiki Bar will be open until midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as long as people are present.
  • The hotel has agreed to have additional umbrellas poolside.
  • The hotel has agreed to open Reflections until 2:00 PM for people to eat their lunch in a comfortable, air-conditioned setting. There will be table and bar service provided.
  • The hotel has also agreed to open Reflections for dinner on Thursday, providing there are a sufficient number of reservations made in advance. This provides a venue to eat for those who do not wish to leave the property. We will be asking for your opinion on this issue, on the registration form, which will be available on the website at a later date.
  • Reflections will serve a price fixed $10.00 hot breakfast menu.  This will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
  • Arrangements have been made to provide our group with upgraded wine selections.  They are Mezza Corona Pinot Grigio and Robert Mondavi Cabernet.  You must request them by name, otherwise, you will receive the house wines.
  • We are happy to say that we have booked the same DJ, Kozmo, for our event.  He has done a terrific job over our last two reunions.

The hotel will begin accepting reservations on Tuesday, January 15th between the hours of 0900 and 2000. The first two weeks will be reserved for members and their families only.  After that, registration will be open to all. We are doing this for a couple of reasons. First, there are a limited number of handicap accessible rooms available. We want our members to have access to them first. If you have such a need, PLEASE BOOK EARLY. Secondly, if you have a desire for a particular type of room, suite, oceanfront, etc., book early. All attempts will be made to accommodate your requests. The reservation telephone number is 800-654-6216.  On January 28th, registration will be open to all who want to join us.

If for any reason you make a reservation and then must cancel, PLEASE do not cancel through the hotel. Contact me directly at the email address on our website. By doing this, we keep the room available for someone else in our group. I assure you, I WILL make the cancellation for you.

In the very near future, we will be publishing a “Reunion Registration Form and Questionnaire” on our website, www.nyctpfloridareunion.com  As in the past, you are required to complete this form as a requirement of registration. This form provides us with needed information for name tags, seating preferences and dinner selections. Specifically, we will be posting meal choices, which have changed from last year. We will also be seeking your interest or lack thereof, of possible events/activities for your participation. Some ideas are the Gambling Cruise, Shopping Trip, Art Class, Dog Races, etc. We do not know your preferences unless you tell us.  This is your reunion, so please help us make it a successful one!

 

FOR INFORMATION ONLY

There has been one change since our last reunion. Jet Blue Airlines no longer has flights into Daytona.  Those wishing to fly Jet Blue will have to fly into Orlando.  We are in the process of trying to get a discount for shuttle service. But, in all honesty, it might be less expensive and more convenient to rent a car.  Especially, if you can arrange to buddy up with another attendee.  We have also been made aware that American Airlines has non-direct flights from both JFK and LaGuardia.  If this is something that may be of interest to you, check with American Airlines.

Again, the webpage is www.nyctpfloridareunion.com . We will be putting information there as it becomes available so check it frequently.  

Looking forward to seeing you all in June!
