President, Dave Pasqualicchio Report: Welcome To The Summer Luncheon Meeting…Nuchies appreciates what you people do for Forestville. You make us look good! The beautification of our village would not be where it is if not for the funds you provide. Thank You!
Summer Break… August is here! It will be a “quick hit” like them all. Enjoy every day! If you buy a six pack….drink them all! If you buy a bottle….drink the whole darn bottle! (they can be alcohol free).
Summer Concert… Is being held on July 24th on the grounds of Ultimate Companies. This years’ band will be “Sick Since Sunday”. The event is sponsored in part by the F.V.A. and the City Concert Series. Hot Summer Fun for All!
Soliciting Groups… For pasta/comedy/auction night on Oct. 25th @ 6pm. A fun night of laughs and good food. Tickets will be available soon and are $12 per person, with groups of 10 for $100.

If you have any items that you feel can be auctioned off to help raise monies on that night, please put them aside, or drop them off at Nuchies.
Halfway Point…Of the 2018 F.V.A. Calendar Season. My, my….where has the past 17 years gone. We will continue to move onward and upward with the focus on beautifying our village!
