Thank you to everyone who attended the 47th Anniversary Ball held at the Grand Ballroom on 18th May 2019. The evening was very enjoyable and we received some wonderful feedback! Everyone was up and dancing to the fabulous music provided by the Mambo Italiano Show. Photos from the evening can be viewed on Facebook.
We are so pleased to report that the Melbourne Trip was a great success and we have received encouraging feedback from all the participants. The Mantra on Bourke Hotel was first class with a wonderful breakfast and good service. A great day was enjoyed by all at the Veneto Club Melbourne for the Sagra Di San Marco where many of our members caught up with friends and relatives, and after the Sagra, a meal was shared at the Veneto Club. On Friday, our members enjoyed a full bus day trip to the beautiful Yarra Valley for wine tasting and lunch. Saturday was a free day to enjoy all that Melbourne offers including the Victoria Markets, shopping and restaurants, followed by a fabulous dinner dance at the Veneto Club. We can also report that all the meals included were very good. A very big thank you to Franca and Valli who did a fantastic job as the tour guides.
Many thanks also to Liza Stocco and Linda Castellan for organising the trip, and Liana Castellan who took the bookings.
NEXT MELBOURNE TRIP
Due to the success of the recent Melbourne Trip, the Committee is a considering another trip to Melbourne later this year in September or October. The Trip will include: flights to Melbourne on a Friday night returning on Sunday night. We estimate the cost will be between $500 and $800 per person (more details to follow).
Please register your interest by contacting Liana Castellan on 0410 414 077 or 82681490 during office hours. We need an idea of numbers by Friday June 28th.
All still going well, unfortunately player numbers are diminishing. The Bocce Committee would like to invite the Next Generation to a “come & try” day or night. They would be very happy to organise a time and day. Bocce is an important part of our tradition and culture which we would love to pass on to our children & grandchildren.
National Australian Bocce Championships are approaching fast on 7th to 10th June 2019, between Fogolar & Sicilia Clubs. Everyone is welcome to come and support their own State teams. This year we only have Rodolfo taking part in the Men’s team, Mirella as President of SABF will be part of the organising Committee, and Sandy Schievenin and Luigino Bolzon will be two of the referees. We are very proud to have four Veneto Club members taking part in these very important roles at Nationals.
For more information please ring: Mirella 0413 590 400 or listen to the Radio segment on Radio Italiana 531 AM every Tuesday from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.
