Potluck Ferragosto Picnic with The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society

Carissimi Italianisti,

The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) has invited us to the annual Ferragosto picnic on Sunday, August 18, 2013 on the grounds of the Villa Rosa Nursing Home in Mitchellville, MD from 12:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. 

A few highlights for the picnic:

• Bring your own picnic basket with food to share.

• Paper products, eating utensils, cups, and beverages (wine, water, beer, soft drinks) will be provided by AMHS;

• A couple of grills are available. Charcoal to be provided by AMHS;

• Music, cards, bocce, tombola;

• A rain-or-shine event, open to all, and we encourage friends and members of other Italian American organizations in the Washington, DC area to participate; and

CLICK HERE for a flyer with additional details on the picnic including directions to Villa Rosa.

As you may have heard, Father Anthony Dal Balcon, Executive Director of Villa Rosa, passed away on Thursday, August 8. Father Anthony would always join the Ferragosto picnic and would say mass in the Villa Rosa Chapel. With his passing, a mass will not be held prior to the picnic. Father Anthony will be dearly missed by all who had the good fortune to know him and interact with him over the years.

If you are able to attend, please make yourself known to the president of AMHS, Maria D'Andrea! 

Cordiali saluti,

Organizers from AMHS & Passatempo

      Yes, that's right. It's the 18th and I've made the correction.
