Veneto Club Inc Bulletin March 2021

NEWS FROM THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE:


We have several very exciting upcoming events planned throughout 2021, however we would also like to hear from our Members about the types of events and trips you would like the Club to hold this year and in the coming years. We invite all our Members, of all ages, to share your ideas for new events, and feedback on past events. We are particularly keen to hold events that may encourage your children and grandchildren to attend together with you.  Please contact us by email info@venetoclubadelaide.com.au or have a chat with any of the committee members. We look forward to hearing from you.

COONAWARRA / MOUNT GAMBIER TRIP   
We are so pleased that the trip has sold out and all participants are looking forward to the trip. Well done to our committee member Neil Wonnocot for a great job organising everything. Neil will be leading the group and he will ensure everyone is on time. The group will be advised as to the Bus pick up point shortly.

BOCCE NEWS
After a long break we are back in business at the Slovenian Club.  Thankfully we are all in good health to continue the game.  We still feel the sadness about losing some friends, but that is life and we will continue. If there is anyone that wants to join they are more than welcome to come.  Sincere thanks to the Vento club committee for their kind contribution to enable us to finalise our account to the Slovenian Club.  Thank you, Bocce President, Vito Simionato.

The Veneto Club is pleased to be a sponsor for the Veneto Market Gardeners website



The Veneto market gardeners website is an archive of oral history recordings, transcripts of interviews, family photos and other documents that tell the story of 19 veneti who arrived in Adelaide in the late 1920s. Within ten years 16 of the pioneers had become market gardeners in the western suburbs, now Kidman Park and Flinders Park. They continued working the market gardens until the early 1980s. Most pioneer market gardeners and their children were foundation members of the Veneto Club Inc. Adelaide.
