Our annual Ferragosto celebration was held on August 23rd at Tartan Park. Close to 60 members and their guests enjoyed a catered picnic dinner and 16 teams participated in a fun bocce ball tournament.
The holiday of Ferragosto – which traces its roots to the Roman Empire - is celebrated on August 15 throughout Italy and often includes outdoor picnics with family and friends at seaside or mountain resorts. In the same spirit, ours was a carefree appreciation event for our members and all the volunteers who contributed their time and talent to make events like the Italian Film Festival and many others a success this past year.
Un grazie di cuore a tutti i volontari.
Congratulations to our 2014 Bocce Tournament winning team: Laura Gengler and Bobby Vossen!
Many thanks to the organizing committee: Peggy Bocchi Hansen, Sandra Gengler and Memo Izzi.
