On Monday November 9th, 2015 a group of over 50 Trentini, primarily from the Val di Non,visited San Francisco accompanied by Father Claudio Holzer of Denno. For 10 years he was a pastor in Melrose Park, a suburb of Chicago and the home of many Trentini immigrants. He is now the director of the Casa Italiana in Washington, DC.
Several of our members met with the group for dinner at the San Francisco Athletic Club. The group quickly filled the venue with song and celebration accompanied by an accordionist.
On March 4th of this year, Father Claudio returned with a much smaller group from the Val di Non. They met with Father Alberto Mengon in San Francisco and with a small group of our members for lunch in Santa Cruz. Two of the ladies had connections to Cloz.
Club members Gemma Angeli Zueck and Silvia Torresani Prevedelli are from Cloz and were present. They had a delightful time speaking about those they know in common. It felt like we Trentini are all one big family.
