    Skål Boston 2020 Holiday Party

    Skålleagues we are grateful to have had the opportunity to toast together on December 17, 2020. It has certainly been an unexpected year, but the fellowship of this group has been a light. Our President, Beth Stehley, welcomed us all to the event and acted as event emcee taking us through a terrific program. Everyone who pre-registered for the meeting was surprised by the Skål elves with a holiday surprise to make your toast a little sweeter. We toasted with outgoing Skål USA President Dave Ryan, who’s been a regular with us this year, and with incoming President Jim Dwyer. Carrie Campbell announced our 2020 charity and David Colella introduced…

    COVID-19 UPDATE: APRIL MEETING

    Good afternoon fellow Boston Skalleagues, I start this communication with a heavy heart as I have heard some of you have been furloughed until we can get ahead of this pandemic.  I am truly sorry because if there was a time when we need to gather and be among friends, this would be that time. I must once again deliver unfortunate news.  Honoring the Governor’s decision to ban gatherings of more than 25 people, our April meeting at the Hampshire House has been cancelled.  I know you share my disappointment as we were preparing to celebrate our Past Presidents.  I want to thank both Tom Kershaw and Michele Giacomozzi for…
