Dear Family and Friends,
I am proud to be a member of PRUMA.
My grandparents, John and Adeline Fletcher, were founding members. My grandfather was a janitor for New Haven Unified School District. Every Saturday, he would go to the basement and practice the saxophone while enjoying wine. The whole neighborhood could hear him practicing. Saturday nights they were at the hall dancing and enjoying themselves.
As a child, I knew Santa had been at our house when I heard Grandpa's sax and the Paranda knocking on the door. These are fond memories that will never be forgotten.
I know many of you are also second and third generation members and have memories of good times here at the hall. The original bylaws and dreams our forefathers had for this organization. The members were here to help each other and people who arrived from Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
This organization just celebrated their 85th Anniversary and I would love to think it will be here another 85 years but we need help. If a family member received a scholarship from PRUMA, we need help from these people. It's time to come back to the club. Become a member, bring back what our grandparents started.
Let's give our children memories here at the PRUMA Hall.
Hope to see you all at the Scholarship Dance.
