Members of the Solon Italian Club are invited to participate in another sausage making party to be held on Sunday afternoon, March 23 at the Solon Community Center. The event is a members-only activity. You will need to bring a knife and cutting board with you. Cost is $30/person. Each participant will get one large pork butt. We'll cut, grind, season, and load as a group. Everyone should get about 6 full rings to take home.
There is limited space, so this is a first-paid, first served event.
Interest has grown among members since the Christmas party to continue an on-going contribution to support our troops overseas. A regular collection of items will be made at our monthly meeting to send to the armed forces serving overseas. We will collect: toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, deodorant, dental floss, cotton balls, disposable hand and feet warmers, toilet paper, razors, hair gel, shampoo, soap, chap stick, wet wipes, foil packets of chicken, dried fruit, energy bars, snack cakes, hot chocolate, candy, beef jerky, playing cards, batteries, puzzle books, and blank greeting cards (to send notes back home).
In addition, we encourage donations of money to defray the cost of shipping packages to the troops.
Men of Italian ancestry are welcome to apply for membership. Annual dues for 2011-2012 are $75. Complete the membership form (below this article) and send it to: Solon Italian Club, P.O. Box 39602, Solon, Ohio 44139. You will be contacted by our current Secretary once your application is received!
