La Festa
Il 10 dicembre, a casa loro, Mimmo e Betty Della Penna hanno ospitato una trentina di membri.
Come sempre la loro accoglienza ha reso la festa una memorabile chiusura dell'anno. Conversazione, cibo e bevanda, erano parte di un' atmosfera socievole, elegante e amichevole.
"Villa Daniela", com battezzata la loro dimora, era decorata al di fuori di una schiera di luci natalizie, e dentro di un magnifico albero di Natale e dettagli particolari della stagione festiva.
Inoltre la cena veramente luculliana, provvista da tutti i partecipanti, il programma stato introdotto da Mimmo dopo diversi brindisi. Giuseppe ha parlato dell'importanza della festa dell'Epifania in Italia, ed ha raccontato la leggenda della Befana.

Eccovi la filastrocca (ce ne sono ben 12 versioni):


La Befana vien di notte, con le scarpe tutte rotte,
col cappello alla romana, viva viva la Befana!
La Befana vien di notte, con le calze tutte rotte,
con le toppe alla sottana, viva viva la Befana!
La Befana vien di notte, nel suo sacco ha il carbone,
ma anche caramelle, viva viva la Befana!
La Befana vien di notte, scende dal camino,
e ti porta un regalino, viva viva la Befana!
Ecco arriva la Befana, La Befana vien di notte,
con le scarpe tutte rotte.
Sta gurdando dal camino se gi dorme ogni bambino,
se la calza ben appesa,
se la luce ancora accesa. "Zitti, zitti, sotto le lenzuola.
Ecco arriva la Befana."
"Li chiudete o no quegli occhi? Se no siete pi che buoni,
niente giochi ne balocchi, solo cenere e carboni."

Il Nostro Club
Club Fior d'Italia was born at the beginning of 2005, with ideas from Giuseppe, Maria and Josiane.
officers were elected:
  • Giuseppe, President
  • Maria, Vice President
  • Francesca, Secretary

    A Constitution was drafted.
    Club meetings have been held in member's homes.

    The Club's Direction
    2006 will see some necessary changes to acommodate the expanding membership.
    Giuseppe suggested the following:

    • That potential new members be encouraged to join and attend meeting.
    • That a public place be secured where the club can hold monthly meetings.
    • That such meetings be held on the third Saturday of the month.
    • That a variety of activities should be part of the club's program in order to promote Italian awareness and culture. Cultural presentations are but one of many items to be promoted. Again, please suggest your favorite.
    • That a logo be designed to be incorporated into correspondence and this newsletter. The talented Tom and Danielle, accomplished artists, could take on this assignment. What would you like to see as a logo?
    • That eventually, due to the cost of reserving venues, a modest membership fee will have to be instituted.
    • That a controller be elected to manage the club funds. Suggestions are fervently solicited.
  • Elyana ha cantato tre canzoni:
    Santo Natale (Silent Night, in italiano); O, Brad frumos (O, Christmas Tree, in rumeno); e Merry Christmas (in inglese).
