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. Look for the promotional banner that will soon be posted outside of Nuchies Restaurant. 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!


See You In September… Fall is arguably the nicest season of all! There are pumpkins, fairs, pies and changing of the leaves.


New And Past Faces In The Crowd…Welcome to Lori Gottschall (Dave’s wife) and Edith Barton (Bruce’s wife). Welcome to Bob Getz (CEO of Post 209). Nice to have you at our meeting! Good to see you again Don & Marcia, Christine (the one and only) and Joyce & Jim (chicken man) Levesque!

Correspondence Report:   Maryellen Holden - Welcome Note Sent – To Fr. Dietrich at St. Matthew Church - Get Well Card Sent  – To Gail Leach   - Setting the record straight…..For those who think I failed to follow through with my commitment to the Duck Race, I was attending a function, along with 12 students, in support of a family dealing with the affects for Brain Tumors. Presidents Notes: The Day of the Duck Race is just not the same without “Our” Waddles.
