January Newsletter

Greetings Fellow Skalleagues!

I’m a bit late in getting this out, so this is a January/February newsletter. We had another amazing dinner at Primavera in Ft. Lauderdale. Chef Giacomo and his staff did a great job. Food and service was outstanding as always. If you're in the area and looking for a good Italian restaurant, please consider patronizing his establishment. Thanks for all those that came out for the January meeting.

It’s that time of year where we announce our new slate of officers for 2013. We will be voting at the February meeting on Tuesday, February 19th at the Hyatt Place in Delray Beach. If you haven't been here yet, you are in for a treat. It’s a great location in Pineapple Grove off Atlantic Avenue – the best area in East Delray. Dinner will be catered by SoLita, a wonderful Italian restaurant a few doors down. If you haven’t RSVPd, please do so with your entrée selection.

2013 Slate of Officers

  • President - Theresa Nix
  • Vice President – Becky Reincke
