VP Trish: Nest 610

Congratulations to the Officers and Members of Nest 610 on a fabulous golf tournament! Members were so pleased to reconnect, but Nest 610 made the 52nd National Golf Tournament so much better! Those who worked (volunteered) were pleasant, energetic and helpful!

As I have mentioned, working with Bob Sulecki, Greg Wieser, Jim McCall and other Nest 610 Members was wonderful. Greg and I were working together to pave the way for future tournaments, as this was my first as the National Golf Commissioner. I have my opinion as to how this position should involve working with the Host Nest and handling some of the work (mainly the actual golf).

Tiarra McGinnis (Communications Assistant) and I worked together to create a Certificate of Appreciation for me to present to Greg and Bob. It was a simple piece of paper (although nicely framed!) that merely said thank you! We acknowledge and value all that you and Nest 610 did to orchestrate such a fabulous event! Thank you for Fun, Fraternalism and Camaraderie!

At the completion of the Awards Presentation on Friday evening, President Kuzma helped me present this award. He mentioned that collectively the Executive Committee, along with the Board of Directors has had some trepidation regarding the success and future of our Nests (especially those with buildings). Nest 610 has not only survived but thrived during the pandemic. They continued to operate (on a limited basis) but also made considerable improvements to their Nest building. Our President thanked and congratulated the Members but especially Nest President, Bob Sulecki, as he was the lead during this time. Hats off for a job well done!

The Nests and Members are the major component in the Polish Falcons! Without you, we would not exist.

Czolem!

VP Trish: 2021 National Golf Hole Sponsors

The following Nests, Districts, Directors and Officers sponsored a sign at the National Golf Tournament. As you know (or maybe you don’t), the entry fee does not cover all of the expenses. Your support is greatly appreciated. Pretty good response with over 1/3 of the Nests supporting Nest 610! Thank you notes will be going out soon!

If you would like to see a photo of your sign, they are posted below. Or, you can visit the Nest 610 Facebook page.

VP Trish: Recapping the National Golf Tournament – Part 1

Even though the 52nd National Golf Tournament is now a fond memory, I will be writing several blogs to spotlight happenings from the golf tournament for the next few weeks.

Obviously, an enormous thank you to Tournament Chair Greg Wieser, Nest President Bob Sulecki and Members of Nest 610! Congratulations to all of you on a fabulous job! The golfers were very pleased with everything (well, maybe the weather Thursday didn’t make folks happy!) regarding the tournament. Numerous folks complimented the shirts, the food (thought it was the best ever!), the entertainment, the hospitality, the bags received upon arrival and the friendliness of the Nest Members. Plus, they got a kick out of the bowling lanes!

Traveling trophy displayed at Nest 8

This year, we added a few extras to the National Golf Tournament. One of the items was a traveling “trophy” for the Nest with the most participants. This year, that award went to Nest 8, Pittsburgh-District IV with 19 participants! Not only did Nest 8 sponsor a hole and send so many golfers, the Nest was extremely generous with donations. Golfers were asked to bring a backpack to donate to St. Martin’s Center. Nest 8 brought 48 backpacks, 36 canned goods and $30.00 cash!! This made me cry!! (This is in addition to all the support given to Nest 610.)

I had miscalculated the amount of time it takes to input scores. Nest President Jimmy Paterni helped me with that. When Jimmy needed to take a break, Nest Treasurer Cheryl stepped in.

Thank you so much for the tremendous amount of support from my Nest. (FYI-Nest 8 presented me with my silver Legion of Honor the previous Sunday!)

Czolem!
