Italian-American Club Update

Steve Ambroso, President, SLIAC

Ciao a tutti! (Hello to everyone!)

Do you like Italian culture, history, and food? Then come and join us on Thursday, Oct. 5, for the Sun Lakes Italian-American Club (SLIAC) dinner/meeting at the Cottonwood San Tan Ballroom. Doors open at 5 p.m. for cash bar and registration. Dinner is at 6 p.m., and the program starts at 6:45 p.m. Our year runs from October through May with monthly dinner/meetings.

We had our best year ever with 133 paid members, and we average about 90 to 100 members and guests for each monthly dinner/meeting. Upcoming speakers and topics will be as follows:

1. Italian Wine Expert

2. Italian Genealogy with a speaker from the Gilbert Mormon Church Genealogy Department

3. Interactive Italian Trivia (competition between tables)

4. Hands-on Italian Cooking Demo

5. Annual Christmas Party and Raffle with Italian Opera Singers from Arizona Opera Company

6. Potluck Lunch and Mini-Bocce Ball Tournament at Sisk Park in Palo Verde

7. Italian Wedding Night Theme (a can’t-miss, dress-up event)

If this looks like fun and you are interested in checking us out, please feel free to attend. It will cost you $23 for your dinner and an exciting, fun-filled evening. There are tables available for singles. If you like what you see and want to join SLIAC, there is a $15 annual membership.

Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, Oct. 5. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at [email protected] or text me at 480-577-9445.

Grazie. A presto (Thank you. See you soon).
