The next Roscommon Society meeting is Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 2:00 PM, in Connaughton’s Riverdale Steakhouse, Bronx, NY 718-549-9946 www.riverdalesteakhouse.com. We will have our Annual Memorial Mass and the installation of officers. This is a great meeting to attend and you’ll be accomplishing three things: meeting, mass and a good time.
We will be preparing for our Annual Dinner Dance which will be held on Sunday, March 2, 2014 in Riccardo’s by the Bridge, Astoria, NY. We are looking for help in the following areas: Dance Co-Chairs, Ad Journal, Membership and Website/Face Book. Please let me know if you would be interested in helping.
We have been holding our meetings at different locations with the hope to accommodate and engage the membership. We have seen an increase in the number of people attending, with many for the first time. There will be no meeting in December 2013 with our next meeting in January 2014 to be announced.
