$13 for Davedi members, Ladies Auxiliary members,


I’m proud to announce that our Culture Room will have a facelift. First I would like to thank long-time and always committed member Joe Urso for leading this project strictly on a volunteer basis. Of course it would not be possible without the generosity and dedication of Aldo Canarino and Carlo Guido from Rona. Construction will start in about 2 weeks. If you can help in any way it will be proudly appreciated and I thank you in advance.

Please contact Joe Urso at 249-358-0967 or me at 705-495-0967. Once completed, all Davedi archives from the past to the present (66 years) will be displayed throughout the Culture Room….pictures, books, trophies, banners.

Together we are a force, alone we are nobody.
God bless.

Vince Orlando,
President Davedi Club

Ladies Auxiliary President’s Message

We hope you enjoyed the Easter Season and participated in the many church services that were offered. I personally participated in many events and was moved by each one.

My thanks go, once more, to the members of the Cultural Committee for their dedicated devotion to the culture of our Italian club. Please pay attention to the many notices that they place at the club as well as newspapers etc. This work is priceless and takes many hours to create.

Report on Bread Making Course: Another very successful class in egg-bread making. We had our maximum of 10 once more and had such a wonderful afternoon of “conversation, work and tasting”. We also brought home a cooked loaf of egg bread and another to finish the baking process at home so the families can smell the pleasantries of home-made bread. We still have many persons on our list that wish to take the course and will be setting up our next session very soon. If you are interested in taking the course, please call the Davedi Club
Many thanks to Amelia Pucher and Janet Zimbalatti who made sure things ran smoothly.

We have also had interest in some baking – in particular our “biscotti”
So we probably will be setting up a class for instructions for these as well.
If anyone has ideas on other areas they would like to share with our many friends, please call Lena Fedeli – 705-472-6170 and I’m sure we can get many participants.
Thanks go out as well to the many ladies who work at our spaghetti suppers. Again, this event means a lot to the benefit of the club. Please participate if you can, by coming out for dinner or by placing your name on our volunteer list. We always need help in many areas.

Once more “Thank you for your continued support”.
