Hello "Gus" just browsing the site and noticed that you are from East Chicago, IN. That very small town is also my home. Although I have not been there in quite a while, just wanted to send a HELLO from Houston, TX.
Hey, Gus. I know you already told me, but why don't you tell everyone about your event and other happenings with your group. Sounds like it was very good and a lot of good was done for charity and scholarships.
Thank you for the invite ... curious, why me? Was it the photo me and the next President of the United States? We have some common interest. "God Father"
