Happy days are here again! On Sunday, June 24, 2012 Families of Italian Lineage held its first summer picnic.
The picnics are very special events for this popular organization. E
ach year we have more members and guests who attend. What draws them to attend? First and foremost: Location- it is a private area on top of the hill in the Regional Park in Laguna Niguel overlooking the beautiful and serene Lake. Secondly: The well kept grassy area so that the men and women can set up Bocce Courts. And lastly: The Food- As we well know Italians love to eat. Kitty Amato chose the food from San Giovanni Restaurant in Trabuco Canyon to be the Caterer.
The menu that she chose was: an array of excellent antipasti, mixed green salad, Penne alla Marinara, lemon chicken, tri-tip beef roast and home made ice cream puffs, cream cheese tartlets and brownies.
What a magnificent day for F.I.L. Not only was the weather warm and sunny with slightly cool breezes, but the planning of Chairlady Kitty Amato was executed to perfection.
After lunch, it was an afternoon of playing bocce, volley ball and Italian/American card playing and talking to members and guests.
As usual, one of the most important aspects of F.I.L. was the socializing of this friendly and family oriented organization. I believe in the saying, “Life is like a journey of mountains and valleys, but there is nothing like friends” that is F.I.L.’s Motto.
Our next event is a cruise by Gondola around the beautiful Huntington Harbor area on July 14, 2012. Our next picnic will be on August 5, 2012. For information, (949) 363-5348
