Brothers and Sisters,


BSOI held a movie and pizza night at our last meeting, it was a great success, thank you to Paula Sasso for allowing us to borrow the movie, and Adam Tigges of TD Bank for providing the pizza.  I apologize if anyone missed the movie, the newsletter was completed and sent out prior to the date being confirmed.


The Wilmington comedy night was this past Friday. It was well attended by 21 members of the BSOI, and was a sold out event.  The comedians were very good as usual and there were many great raffles and silent auction items.  If you have not been able to attend in the past, it is a fun event, and a great way to support other lodges.


At our last meeting we discussed the wine tasting with a proposed date in April but we will be moving this to May as I will be away on a family trip to Italy and would not want to miss the event. We do request that any raffle items be brought to the February, March and April meeting so that raffles can start being organized.


As the wine tatsing is being moved to May, we will be hosting a BYOB paint nite at Pinot's Palette in April, date TBD at February's meeting.  This will be open to anyone interested in attending, the fee will be $45.00 P.P, you may bring your own beverage & snacks, painting supplies, canvases, aprons, and painting instruction will be provided along with paper goods.  We will be discussing this more in depth at our next meeting.


Please don't forget the Pizzeria Uno fundraiser on March 8th.  This will be held at the Uno Pizzeria & Grill 300 Mishawum Road Woburn, MA 01801.  The attached flyer needs to be presented that evening so that BSOI gets credit.    

Italian class registration was held on January 31st, let's hope for another successful semester.


Last but not least, we are scheduled to initiate one of three new members at our next meeting on February 15th . GO PATS!!!
