Christmas Lunch 2018

Our Christmas event was on Sunday December 9th. Once again Father Alberto Mengon arranged for us to have our gathering at the lovely campus of the Salesian College Preparatory School in Richmond. Thank you Father Mengon!!

We had a typical Trentino meal with polenta, crauti (sauerkraut), sausages and strudel. Greg McGarry gave a presentation describing his experience participating in the Trentino youth exchange program.  Greg’s a descendant of the Tafner family of Trento and the Pedri family of Cagnò in the Val di Non.  Last year Greg stayed with a young couple in Rovereto, Riccardo Bisoffi and Debora Finotti.  Then this past summer that couple came to California to visit him.  It was a very pleasant and rewarding experience for all three of them.
