President’s Message – February 2, 2015

Thanks for all who attended our January RCA meeting!  We had a great turnout!  Our next meeting is March 11, 2015.  Our CA meetings are now on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 PM, in the GYM, of the Grange.  Dunkin’ Donuts and coffee will be served!

 

Your block captains, by now, (weather permitting) delivered a questionnaire for you to fill out.  Please return it to your captain or email pres@radburncitizens.com.  We are trying to reach everyone and will be in touch with you, regarding the how you would like us to keep you updated!  We have many events and want to keep you in the loop! 😉

 

We have many exciting things to look forward to!  Our first event is Comedy Night, February 21.  Allan Finn will be the star of the show.  Credits: Sirius/XM, Wendy Williams, San Diego Comedy Festival, TMZ.  Allan Finn’s parents fled the former USSR so he could achieve the American Dream. They came here, not knowing the language, with less than $100. He’s repaid them by becoming a comedian.

Mr. Finn is able to relate to audiences all across the spectrum, from immigrants to college students to people who’ve built themselves up through hard work and determination. He is proficient at working clean or dirty, and receives equally tremendous laughs at both.

Whether the topics are political (he makes fun of both sides), social, relationships, pop culture or just unique observations, Mr. Finn explores them all with refreshing insight and a powerful wit.

 

He will be opened by Cornell Christianson (magic show) and two amateur comedians.   Please see enclosed flyer for details and invite friends and family to this fun evening!
