Italian American Club Cultural Group – First Monday of the month meeting
Monday, May. 3, 2021 - 1:00 PM
On Monday, May 3 at 1 PM, The Cultural Group and the Walnut Creek Italian MeetUp group will try to have a meeting at 1 PM in Larkey park, Buena Vista Ave at First Ave, Walnut Creek. I tried to set up the meeting in Rossmoor but GRF is not ready yet.
Park in the parking lot or in the Lindsay Wildlife parking and look for us at the picnic tables with the Italian flag. While there are seats in the tables bring your beach chairs, we can then move in the sun or shade.
The weather reports indicate temperature in the 70 so it will be ok. Please bring your face masks, refreshments for yourself (alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the park) and your tales of the past months.
It will be nice to see each other in person. Let’s hope that soon we can resume our bi-monthly meetings in the Vista room and the Italian films at Peacock.
The Italian Cultural Group is envisioned as a place where participants
can share their love of Italy and the Italian culture, Si parla
italiano, and English is spoken too!
This bilingual group encourages lively, informal conversations in
either language about anything Italian: food, music, travel, movies,
etc. Discussions will reflect the interests of attendees. Activities
could include games like Scrabble in Italian or Italian card games
like Scopa and Briscola.
Traditional Italian holidays will be celebrated. Bilingual newspapers
and magazines will be on hand to stimulate conversation. There could
even be a sing-along of favorite Italian songs. Since the Vista room
has a kitchen there is a possibility of a few cooking demonstrations.
This group is free and open to all residents and guests. It is not
necessary to be a member of the Italian-American Club to participate
in the Italian Cultural Group. The only requirement is an interest in
all things Italian. For more information about this group and all the
events of the Italian-American Club of Rossmoor, check out the website
