On August 18, 39 MWI members spent a most enjoyable afternoon at Gocci D'Oro 2 in Lindenhurst. The staff was most pleasant and accommodating, and the food was delicious and plentiful. From the wine and appetizers, through the incredible desserts (tartufo, cannoli, cheesecake and other cakes) and cappuccino, the meal couldn't have been better. Many of the women are planning on returning for lunch or dinner on their own. Not one complaint was made the entire time! We look forward to having more enjoyable events in the future!

THE MWI BOARD HAS MADE THE DECISION THAT YOU MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO ATTEND ANY AND ALL IN PERSON MWI EVENTS. IF YOU ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED, YOU WILL NOT BE ADMITTED. IN ADDITION, ACCORDING TO CDC GUIDELINES FOR LONG ISLAND, MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL MWI MEETINGS, INCLUDING SINGLES AND DINE AROUND.
You only need to show your card once, and we will keep you on the list of those vaccinated.
This is being done for the comfort and well being of all of our members. Please be patient upon arriving, and do not enter the meeting room until your vaccine card has been checked.
