Febraury 7, 2006 – The Sudbury Cycling Club is having their annual Rider’s Banquet on Saturday, February 25th, 2006 at the Italian Club in Copper Cliff. In particular, the banquet will celebrate the unique contributions of long-time volunteer member Eli Girolametto.
Eli was one of the founding members of the Sudbury Cycling Club and was also the Club’s treasurer for over 30 years. For those who raced at the Caruso Club Festival races in Sudbury, the prize money cheques you received would have been arranged and endorsed by Eli!
Although not a racer himself, Eli’s sons were very active on the racing scene. Long after his sons had finished racing, Eli continued with his service to the club. In honour of his dedication to the club, we are going to have a special appreciation dinner for him. For double the pleasure, we’ll be hosting the SCC rider dinner and award night on the same evening as Eli’s appreciation celebration.
The dinner will be held on Saturday, February 25th, 2006 at the Italian Club in Copper Cliff, and the chicken and pasta buffet will cost $25 per person. Tickets can be purchased from Lisanne at the Wednesday night Delki Dozzi practices (6pm-8pm). Tickets will be available starting this Wednesday, (February 8) evening. Family and friends are more than welcome. We are also hoping to have a special guest as the MC. Hope to see everyone there.
The Sudbury CC is trying to contact all former members of the Sudbury Cycling Club in order to give them the opportunity to wish Eli well. If you’d like to extend your greetings and well wishes please do so at the following addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or on the SCC’s website – www.sudburycc.ca/index.html
If you would like to have more information about the dinner please contact the Club Secretary – Lisanne Desbiens – email@example.com.
