"The purpose of this organization is to promote the heritage, culture and traditions of Italian-Americans through social, educational and recreational events. The organization shall also advance the educational development of Italian-American youth by generating and distributing funds for collegiate scholarships."
The Solon Italian Club children’s Christmas party was held on Sunday, December 9th at the Solon Community Center and it was another rousing success. Al Giammaria has been chairing the event for 7 years and continues to do a marvelous job.
This year there were about 150 people in attendance. A volunteer crew prepared dinner while Al’s ‘elves’ organized the presents for Santa’s arrival. There were 56 children and grandchildren of club members at the party and each had a chance to visit, personally, with Santa and receive their gift. “Things went really well, again, this year,” says Giammaria. “I have a great group of guys who help me and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.” Desserts were provided by families who attended the event.
