Loggia Glen Cove #1016, Inc www.loggiaglencove.org Volume Gallo Issue 14 E-mail [email protected] / 516 676-8110 Presidents Message Dear Brothers and Sisters, February is the month we hope the groundhog does not see his shadow and spring comes early. We celebrate Valentine's Day with our loved ones, and remember our past U.S. Presidents. On January 7th we held our monthly membership meeting. We installed and welcome three new members: Carmela Bozzella, Ada Salvato, and Efraim Spagnoletti (Glen Cove Councilman). On Jan 19th we hosted the District II Presidents Meeting. Thank you Br. Al for helping with setup. On Jan 28th we held our officers meeting. On Jan 30th I attended the 22nd Winter Charity Ball. On the 31st several of us attended the NYOSIA Plenary session hosted by the John Michael Marino Lodge in Port Washington. On January 1st we lost a great Italian American , Governor Mario M. Cuomo. He touched and inspired many people throughout his extraordinary life and his impact and accomplishments were deeply felt. He collected some of his speeches in a book, More than Words, 1993. In the Introduction, he said one of his recurring themes was: " the need for seeing our desperate society as a family". In an interview with the Associated Press on Dec. 18, 1992 he answered, " What I would like them to say , what I would like to have written on my tombstone: "He tried." That I think is the maximum we can do. You cannot succeed in forcing people to love you. Nobody can stop you from loving other people. I do think I am entitled to have that written on my tombstone. "He tried, he really did." Amore, a word that conjures up visions of life's possibilities and stirs up the Italian soul. We feel a life without love is a life not worth living. Italy is a synonym of romance and the air of the country resonates with the music of love. The Romans gave us Venus, the goddess February 2015 of love. The renaissance artist Botticelli painted her, emerging from a seashell, the epitome of feminine beauty. The birth of Venus hangs in the Uffizi gallery in Florence. Venice, a gondolier serenading two lovers under the moonlight. Isle of Capri, honeymooners flock like pilgrims seeking a miracle. Naples, more bridal shops than any other city in the world. For Italians, Amore sustains life itself. Italian proverb "what is far from the eyes is far from the heart". Please note that at this point in the year, your 2015 dues should be paid as soon as possible. All current memberships are expected to be paid and up to date as of March 1, 2015. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 516 996-1218 or 516 676-8110. At our February 4th meeting, world renowned artist, Long Island University professor, and my good friend Dan Christoffel will give a presentation on the great renaissance sculptor Michelangelo. He will show slides and discuss the sculptors early and late creations as well as present the Sistine ceiling and its historic imagery. *Mark your calendars-On March 22nd we will be marching in the Glen Cove St. Patrick's Day parade. Following the parade we will be celebrating St. Joseph at the lodge. All attending are asked to bring a covered meatless dish. Cio che non ci uccide, ci fa piu forti! Joseph A. Gallo Joseph A.

Celebriamo San Valentino con i nostri cari, e ricordiamo i nostri ultimi presidenti degli Stati Uniti. Il 7 gennaio abbiamo tenuto il nostro incontro mensile d'appartenenza. Abbiamo installato e diamo il benvenuto a tre nuovi membri: Carmela Bozzella, Ada Salvato, e Efraim Spagnoletti (Glen Cove Consigliere). Il 19 gennaio abbiamo ospitato il Distretto II presidenti Meeting. Grazie a Br. Al per aver aiutato con l'installazione. Il 28 gennaio si è tenuta la riunione di ufficiali. Il 30 gennaio ho partecipato alla sfera 22 Inverno Charity. Il 31 molti di noi hanno partecipato alla sessione plenaria NYOSIA ospitata dal John Michael Marino Lodge a Port Washington. Il 1 ° gennaio abbiamo perso un grande americano italiano, il Governatore Mario M. Cuomo. Ha toccato e ispirato molte persone in tutta la sua straordinaria vita e il suo impatto e le realizzazioni sono state profondamente sentita. Ha raccolto alcuni dei suoi discorsi in un libro, più delle parole, 1993. Nell'Introduzione, ha detto uno dei suoi temi ricorrenti è stato: "la necessità di vedere la nostra desperate società come una famiglia". In un'intervista con l'Associated Press il 18 dicembre 1992 gli rispose: "Quello che vorrei che dicessero, quello che vorrei aver scritto sulla mia lapide: "Hoprovato." Questo credo sia il massimo che possiamo fare. Non si può riuscire a costringere la gente ad amare te. Nessuno può impedirvi di amare altre persone ... penso ho diritto di avere quel scritto sulla mia lapide. "Ha cercato, davvero fatto." Amore, una parola che evoca visioni di possibilità della vita e suscita l'anima italiana. Ci sentiamo una vita senza amore è una vita non degna di essere vissuta. L'Italia è sinonimo di romanticismo e l'aria del paese risuona con la musica d'amore. I romani ci ha dato Venere, la dea dell'amore. L'artista rinascimentale Botticelli il suo dipinto, che emerge da una conchiglia, l'epitome della bellezza femminile. La nascita di Venere si trova alla Galleria degli Uffizi a Firenze. Venezia, gondoliere serenata di due amanti al chiaro di luna. Isola di Capri, viaggi di nozze affollano come pellegrini alla ricerca di un miracolo. Napoli, i negozi più nuziali di qualsiasi altra città del mondo. Per gli italiani, Amore sostiene la vita stessa. Proverbio italiano "ciò che è lontano dagli occhi è lontano dal cuore". Si prega di notare che a questo punto nel corso dell'anno, i vostri 2015 quote dovrebbero essere pagati al più presto possibile. Tutte le appartenenze corrente dovrebbero essere pagati e aggiornati il 1 ° marzo 2015. Se avete domande, non esitate a chiamarmi al 516 996-1218 or 516 676-8110. Nel nostro incontro del 4 febbraio,un' artista di fama mondiale, docente di Long Island University, e il mio buon amico Dan Christoffel darà una presentazione sul grande scultore rinascimentale Michelangelo. Egli vi mostrerà diapositive e discutera' i primi scultori e le creazioni in ritardo, così come presente nella Sistina e il suo immaginario storico. * Segnatevi la data: 22 Marzo marciamo nella parata di San Patrizio in Glen Cove.
