    Join us for our Annual Ferragosto - on Monday, August 15th at 12 noon to 2:00pm. Bring a lunch and lawn chair. We have a new bocce court. We bought the materials and Victor Consiglio and Phil Maiello built the bocce court. Thank you, Victor and Phil, for a job well done. Play some bocce on our new court, bring some playing cards or just sit and visit! We will provide free soda and we ask you to bring some dessert. In case of rain, the event will be cancelled. Ferragosto is the whole month of August but on August 15 it is an Italian holiday that honors the day of Mary’s Assumption. It is, for Italians, the climax of summer and a day to spend with family and friends.
