The Davedi Club Grape Stomping Festival

On Saturday October 15 we held the annual Grape Stomping Festival. The evening was a fun packed night with many guests enjoying a glimpse of our Italian culture. Mike Monaghan from the Moose FM did a great job stepping in at moments notice to emcee the evening.

To the handful of volunteers that did help throughout the evening, Sandro
Cipparrone, Domenic Mascioli, Jim Marmino, Sam Giustra, Domenic Muratore, Alfredo Celebre, and our newest member Frank Atwood. A BIG heartfelt thank you goes to you gentlemen (never would have happened without you). I also want to thank Cathy Fruci for organizing the Vendemmia Parade and her volunteers: Donna Adams, Nella and Settimio Verardi, Maria Gosselin, Gina Graff, Lucia Doyle, Lynn Mulette, Shirley Landry, Joe Pavone, Mariano Cirullo, Ed Valenti, Italo Servello. Finally, I would like to thank Phillip Penna (Manager), the kitchen and serving staff for making sure everything went without a hitch.

It has been a wonderful experience chairing this event for the past few years and I look very much forward to handing it over to the new chair.

God Bless Mike Ianiro
