With this message, I urge you to consider purchasing or renewing your membership to the Italian American Bocce Club. The Club has a rich history here in greater New Orleans and we need your help more than ever to keep this important piece of our cultural fabric alive.
As this new fiscal year for the Club arrives, we face our greatest challenge to remain open and providing the community with a great place to play the ancient sport of bocce. This is no idle threat or exaggeration - unless we raise enough money through our membership dues and league fees, our next couple of leagues will be our last.
Although we are in dire straights, we believe that we can continue to grow our membership and leagues. We have been fortunate to welcome many new friends over the past few months who have participated in our Spring Leagues and Open Bocce Nights. However, we need your help to get through this challenging time and to give us a chance to build the Club back up.
Dues for this year remain at $150 - quite the bargain!!! With your club membership, you will receive discounted league fees (currently $85 for non-league members, $50 for new non-league members, and $40 for members), discounted rental rates for the Club, and hopefully some special member events throughout the year.
Even if you are not a bocce fanatic, I ask you to consider purchasing a membership to help keep the Club alive - you will know that you are doing your part in preserving our New Orleans...and Italian...heritage and history.
If you would like to purchase a membership, you can drop off or mail check to the Club (address below). You can make your check out to: "Italian American Bocce Club".
Please do not allow this to be the last year that the doors are open at the Italian American Bocce Club.
My best and many thanks,
President - Italian American Bocce Club
