2013 Nov Dec Baita

September 13, 2020   By Club Trentino

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Directors of the Club. Yes, Christmas is just around the corner and I am sorry to have to remind you so early, but our next Baita goes out in January, so here is our chance.

Key dates (see inside) – If you missed the Mass for the Deceased you may not have heard, Father Marco Bagnarol is leaving for Brazil January 31, 2014. He has been in Toronto for 10 years now and the church feels they need his great services for another community. Our loss will be their gain. Many good wishes and safe travelling to Father Marco. As a farewell to Father Marco, on Friday January 17, 2014, at the Club, we will be providing some wine and cheese donated by some of our Trentino advertisers and supporters. We will ask for $25.00 a person for this event which will be given to Father Marco to take back with him to Brazil to purchase goats for the community he is going to. The goats cost $200.00 each. Please email Adrianno or call me, David, to reserve a spot as we will have a maximum of 80 people for this event. At the General Meeting we will elect, for the next 2 years, the board of directors. The good news is all current directors of the board are returning and we will add another couple. So come out to the meeting, show your support and give some input on the things we wish to do for the future. – A BIG change this year, is Breakfast with Santa, at the larger banquet hall. Don’t miss this one as the kids will see something they have not seen before at our Christmas Event. Included in this Baita is the form for the Christmas Event, please complete it and make sure you note on it (at bottom) how many adults will attend. We will have lots of space this year so we hope parents and grandparents both attend. – Superbowl is coming. We had 18 people watch the event last year and we already have 30 confirmed for this year. So come on out, bring your friends and eat all you can eat for $25.00. Call to confirm so we order enough food for all.

The Triveneto trip for 2014 is set for June 27, 2014 to July 11, 2014. This is an action packed, sightseeing, historical trip to absorb the culture of the Italian North East. The travelling will cover Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Trentino and Veneto. A trip like this would normally cost $4,000 plus but it is available for $2,500 (price to be confirmed). There will be 9 youth and 4 chaperons going on this trip. The Trentino Club is to select 2 youth and 1 chaperon. For the 2 Trentino youth, preference will be given to youth between the ages of 18 and 21, still youth up to 28 can apply. For the chaperon, you will be responsible for the youth and taking turns driving a van and/or car that will carry half of the Group. If you have any questions and want an application form, please contact me, David Corazza, at 905-832-6404.

The date for the ITTONA convention is set, July 18 to 20, 2014 in Ogden, Utah. We should be receiving information on the convention in late November. Mark the date down to attend. I had the opportunity to visit a few weeks ago for the ITTONA President’s Meeting. The place is beautiful with the high mountains in the background that remind you of Trentino.
