and friends came together
to celebrate the
warmth of the season
at the annual Holiday
Party. A big “thank you” to the club’s

by on Wednesday, December 5 to decorate
the fi rst fl oor hall. The free gathering
was catered by our neighbor,
National Diner. We also collected new

Bronx shelter. To everyone
- have a Merry
Christmas, Happy Chanukah
