A Letter from Lynne:
June is a month for celebrations! Happy Father’s Day all to of our dads and grandfathers, and congratulations to all of our recent and upcoming graduates!
I’d also like to congratulate the winner of our recent “So You Think You Can Choreograph” competition, Carla Sams, and runners up Maureen Milazzo and Ellen DeGrazia! Each contestant choreographed a dance to their favorite song and presented it to our panel of judges. Carla’s routine will be used in an upcoming Dance*ol*ogy session. We also raised more than $3000 for the National Stroke Association. Congratulations to all!
As a give back to our membership, we would like to invite the first 40 members to sign up for an evening of Italian cooking! Come and taste the dishes prepared by Executive Chef Nazareno Daniele from Trattoria 632. Join us on June 11th for a four-course tasting in the Café, starting at 6pm. Reservations are necessary by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us at our opening Friday Lunchtime BBQ starting on June 13th, and every Friday through the summer (weather permitting). Enjoy either a burger or hot dog, chips and a bottle of water — all for $5! This month you can also cast your vote for your favorite Club Fit Smoothie, with the winning smoothie offered at a 20% discount during the month of July.
The beautiful weather is a great excuse to take advantage of our Hiking Club. Click here to get more information on the schedule and to read about our experienced hike leaders, Peter Meskin and Andrew Stein. The Hiking Club is open to both members and non-members, so bring a friend!
A big thank you goes out to our maintenance team, for a seamless and expedient “bubble down” process, yet again. As you know, we’ll be replacing the bubble with a new structure in the fall, and thought that in our efforts to “Go Green” these past few years, we would recycle the old material by cutting it into individual tarps and offering them to our members. We have 10′ x 10′ tarps available (size approximate) — if anyone is interested in taking some of the free tarps made from our old bubble please send an email to email@example.com by Saturday, June 7th to arrange for pick up.
Parents, a reminder that Summer Camp begins June 30th, and registration is ongoing. I hope to see the whole family at the club!

To Keep You Inspired . . . Club Fit Member and Cancer Warrior Diana Pernicano
When you are a nineteen-year-old college student, the last thing you expect to hear are the words, “You have cancer.” But that’s exactly what happened to Diana Pernicano this past November, when she was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma. Luckily, Diana had a happy ending. On February 28, after three months of intense chemotherapy at Sloan-Kettering, Diana was declared cancer-free.
She decided to make a positive out of a negative by learning as much as she could about the disease, and devoting herself to educating others, kids in particular, about cancer. “Kids in middle school and high school need to understand that it’s important to go to the doctor and to stay healthy, that cancer doesn’t just happen to adults,” she said. But people of all ages also need to understand that cancer doesn’t always have to end badly.
