Italian Cultural Group – Larkey Park Walnut Creek – 1 PM – Third Monday of the month
Monday, Oct. 19, 2020 - 1:00 PM
Everyone is tired of Zoom meetings and we all would like to see each other in person. Tomorrow’s weather and smoke conditions should be fine.
I could not get permission to meet in Rossmoor, so following the example of the Italian MeetUp, let’s meet in Larkey Park in Walnut Creek (Buena Vista Ave at First Ave) https://www.walnut-creek.org/Home/Components/FacilityDirectory/FacilityDirectory/56/665?npage=2&selamenityid=75
Ok then, Monday, October 19 at 1 PM until 3 PM or whenever…
We will meet at the south end of the park; the closest parking is the parking lot at the entrance and just follow the path that goes west. Look for the small Italian flag. Please bring your own seating, food or drink and a mask. There is plenty of room to sit 6 feet apart and lots of shade.
Email me for directions.
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
