President’s Message

Buon Viaggio to Ladies Auxiliary members on their trip to Sault Sainte Marie for their Northern Ontario Italian Ladies Auxiliaries convention. It’s a truly wonderful event and I want to wish all of you a wonderful time filled with laughter, friendship and memories.

Congratulations go out to a Davedi Executive member, Frank Ricciuti and his wife on their wedding, celebrated at the Club recently. Congratulations, auguri e cento anni di salute.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Thanksgiving, is a time to reflect on and to be thankful to God for countless blessings. Those fortunate enough get to enjoy bountiful feasts with loved ones. It is also a time to be mindful of those less fortunate and to share our blessings.

Spero che tutti abbiano avuto una meravigliosa festa di ringraziamento. La festa di Ringraziamento è un tempo per riflettere ed essere grati a Dio per le innumerevoli benedizioni. Quelli abbastanza fortunati possono godersi feste abbondanti con le sue famiglie. È anche il momento di essere consapevoli dei meno fortunati e di condividere le nostre benedizioni.

Film Flowers of Saint Francis Film will be shown at the Davedi Club on Friday November 15 at 7 p.m. No admission charge. For members, families and friends. All welcome.

“In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rossellini and co-writer Federico Fellini lovingly convey the universal teachings of the People’s Saint: humility, compassion, faith, and sacrifice. Gorgeously photographed to evoke the medieval paintings of Saint Francis’s time, and cast with monks from the Nocera Inferiore Monastery, The Flowers of St. Francis is a timeless and moving portrait of the search for spiritual enlightenment.”

Sandro Cipparone and Benito Zimbalatti,

L’ultimo sole d’estate tramonta lento e triste
di fronte alla dimora del mio riposo autunnale.
Pensieri, pensieri nostalgic volana nella mia mente,
mentre il giorno muore, intenerito da un flebile canto
di un fringello solitario tra i rami d’un pino secolare. Lontano lo Stromboli, tra un cumulo di cirri rosa,
spinge lentmente in alto un nugolo di fumo
spargemdo intorno una pace di quiete eternal.
