    Perfect weather, friendly people, interesting activities, and an opportunity to enjoy food and wine in a beautiful setting. Over 130 people participated. Condolences to our members who could not make it. But whether you came to the picnic or not - be certain to come to the Pranzo di Ferragosto next Sunday at Nicola's. Contact me for a reservation and payment.

    A couple of notes...
    There will be no morning mass Sunday, so the picnic starts at noon.
    And the Abruzzi Club will also be selling pizza.

    Hello, everybody!
    I am new in this Group and I would like to participate to this event. Unfortunately, I don't have a car; is there someone living close to Grandview (Columbus) that can pick me up?
    Thank you so much!
    A presto,
    Ilaria

      Hi Ilaria! Welcome aboard. I do not live that close to Grandview, but am willing to come down to get you if you get no other offers. My grandson and I will attend. What is your address? [masked]

  • R. Sergio S.

    The address is indeed Cleveland Ave but during the past 40 years Cleveland was widened and the homes are now accessible off the access road Hannawalt. Makes sense to the Post Office I reckon. You will see cars pouring in and there will be signs. No worries.

    There better be a lot of small children! The soccer class is for 5 to 10 year-olds and Italia in Ohio has a table for coloring pictures. Also there will be bocce instruction for children. And a cookie table, although the kids will have to fight the adults for them.

    The Abruzzi Club is actually off Hanawalt. You make a left at the light north of Main, follow the road 2 or 3 blocks and it's on the left. They have the Italian colors out there next to a long driveway right by the road

    I really want to attend, but another event with friends is competing! May not make it.

    July 29, 2013

  • Heidi G.

    I looked the address up on the above map-link. this is very confusing .Is the Club of Hanawalt Rd or is it east of Alum Creek with access from Cleaveland Ave?

    will there be very many young children we have our 10 year old granddaughter with us?

    July 29, 2013

  • R. Sergio S.

    Mass is planned for 10:30. (English? Italian? Latin?) Expect the crowd around noon-ish. I'll be there about that time.

  • Heidi G.

    Is everyone of us going to be there at 10:30 am or what time would be best to meet?

    July 29, 2013

  • R. Sergio S.

    She should bring that internationally famous photographer friend of hers ;-) In addition this is a picnic so bring what you wish to eat. There is also a non-compulsory "share table" if there is a dish you would like to showcase.

    My wife wants to know what she can bring

      Download the SCOPA LITE app, play a few rounds, and you'll have the expertise too.
