Invitation letters for the FEAST OF SAINT ANTHONY OF PADUA in Canada have been mailed. A copy of the letter can be found under the Canada Section or click here for English or Italian. If you have not received an invitation within the week and would like to attend, please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
NEW FOR THIS YEAR'S FEAST are:
Door Prize(s) Donation Prize(s) Calcetto
We have free World Cup Soccer T-Shirts (all Italy of course) for those who sign up for Volleyball and Calcetto. But we will be selling T-shirts at bargain prizes.
We are also selling beer mugs with the original coat of arms of Villavallelonga fired onto glass! The style of mug is the Heidleberg stein made by Libby Glass. If you make a donation for the Feast of St. Anthony, you will receive one free mug which I will hold for you or which you will receive upon entrance to the park.
note... ONLY THOSE WHO MAKE A DONATION WILL RECEIVE A FREE MUG.
You can buy mugs from me now at $5.00 each. Similar glasses retail for $10.00. We only have a few for sale but may be able to order more based on demand. I plan to have a picture of this mug on the site soon.
I am saddened to report the following death.
Elizabeth Winkler-Conti, daughter of Columbia Tantalo-Winkler, passed away recently. Our deepest symathies and prayers to family and friends.
