Metro New York

The Metro New York Chapter is PLANNING ANOTHER GET-TOGETHER, ALSO AT MAGGIE MAY’S, ON SATURDAY, 9 DECEMBER 2017 (1 to 4 P.M.) AND YOU ARE ALL AGAIN CORDIALLY INVITED ! !  The place is located at 214-22 41st Avenue (between Bell Boulevard and 214th Place), Bayside, N.Y. 11361.  The telephone is 718-224-9898.  The price per person is $39 and that includes everything, including any parking cost (see me for $4 reimbursement per car).  We offer a discount for 10th veterans.  PLEASE LET Rus Salemi know soon by calling 347-744-0121 or 718-932-5351 or sending him an e-mail: Rosario turiddu20@gmail.com if you plan on attending so that the caterer will know. 

THE MENU CHOICES (main dishes) are three (3) from the following group:  1) Broiled Filet of Sole;  2) Chicken Marsala; 3) Penne a la Vodka: 4) Shrimp Scampi; 5) Chicken Francese; 6) Spinach Ravioli; 7) Shepherd’s Pie; 8) 16 oz. Black Angus Certified Shell Steak ($4.00 extra/per order).  KINDLY MAIL YOUR CHECK WITH YOUR THREE (3) CHOICES TO ME, ROSARIO SALEMI, ON OR BEFORE MONDAY, 27 NOVEMBER 2017. The top three “vote” getters will be our final three choices of dishes.  

Municipal (lot) metered parking is mere yards from the restaurant and street parking (also meters) is available.  There is free neighborhood street parking several blocks in any direction away from the restaurant, though it may be challenging.  The Long Island Railroad is available too and trains stop at the Bayside station which is just a few short blocks from the restaurant.  For any questions or directions please call Rus at 347-744-0121 or 718-932-5351

One of our honored dinner guests in June was Mr. Walter H. Stewart (85th, Co. B & Co. D) who had educated me about much regarding life in the 10th during WWII.  Additionally, his connection to the 1946 historical novella about the 10th titled “Night Climb” by Frank Harper was most interesting.  A copy of the book (see attached photo) was on hand and we shared a passage from it between libations and good food. 

For our December luncheon, we hope to have a more varied group as well as one or more WWII era gentlemen again.  We also look forward to modern day 10th (Light) Mountaineers, both active and veterans plus relatives and friends joining us.  Additionally, we are bending every effort to be graced with the presence of at least member of a Gold Star family.

We are planning a raffle this time and as per last time, we encourage everyone to bring at least one photo or memento of a beloved 10th Mountaineer, past or present.  Stories and sharing memories about them are most welcome as are those of new generations plus of course, their fond hopes and plans for the future.  Yes, please brag about your children grandchildren and great grandchildren!

The New York Metro Chapter is planning to contribute very soon to the Adopt-A-Platoon Program that Col. Mike Plummer (Ret.) of Ft. Drum supervises.  If you would like to contribute, please mail items to me at 32-22 61st STREET, WOODSIDE, N.Y. 11377.  WE NEED VARIOUS SUNDRIES AND NON-PERISHABLE ITEMS. THESE INCLUDE SOCKS, TEE SHIRTS, DRY PACKAGED SNACKS, CHAPSTICKS, PLAYING CARDS and more.

Sierra Nevada 

1.    The Biathlon that we sponsor will be Sunday, January 14, 2018 at the Auburn Ski Hut at Boreal Ridge. This event has been going on for a good 30 years and I've been involved for the last dozen or so years. This is a cross country and shooting event open to all all ages and if you have never seen a Biathlon in action I urge you to come to the event in January. In the past, SN members took an active role in setting up the event but now that has been completely taken over by the Auburn ski club members. I will say a few words at the closing ceremony and then give medals to the winners but basically everything is done by the Auburn ski club. 

2.    Riva Ridge/Mt. Belvedere Luncheon is scheduled for Saturday, February 17, 2018 and will be held at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Redwood City. We have been here several times before and it seems to be a nice venue for our gathering. So, if you didn't make the luncheon last month we hope to see you in February!

3.    Our Wine Tasting Picnic will be Saturday, May 19, 2018 and we will again meet at Sebastiani Winery in Sonoma. We had a great turnout last May and everyone had a wonderful time. Again, we hope to see you there!

Val Rios will be giving further information closer to the date of the events but is hoping you will mark them on your 2018 calendar. 

There is now a Sierra Nevada Chapter Facebook page so please log on and request to be a member. The other day Val Rios posted pictures of the current chapter veterans but please let Val Rios know if he has missed someone.
