“ For those who don't like to drive very far to attend these mtgs., consider that last night I drove from Galena (far to the north), to east of Easton (to pick up a friend), to the Upper Arlington Library (according to my friend, another 17 mi.). It is a highlight each mth. to socialize with my friends who attend, and to broaden my experiences about Italy. The only things that could keep me away are my husband's failing health or a college Italian class. It is a highlight for me each month!!! Thanks to all of the organizing that it takes to put together the monthly mtgs.!!!!!!! I so appreciate it; hence. if you have the passion for Italy as I do, you are missing it if you don't attend. ”
