Italian American Club of Venice

Novità – Novembre, 2017

la Parola del Presidente

In October we celebrated Columbus Day in observance of his discovery of the Americas. Approximately only half of the states now observe Columbus Day, instead calling it the politically-correct Indigenous Peoples Day. Recently we have witnessed the tearing down of Revolutionary and Civil War statues in an effort to rewrite our history. Presently there is a movement afoot to remove statues of Columbus. We, as Italian-Americans, must never allow outside groups to denounce Columbus and his accomplishments. In other Club news, please be advised that our Nominating and Elections Committee consists of the following members: Vi Giancola, Anthony Rondello, Joe Bird, Dave Johnson and Maria Tims. If you are interested in running for the 2018 Executive Board, contact one of them. Slogan for the month: Ann Landers said, "Do your givin' while you're livin'...then you'll be knowin' where it's goin'."
Ciao, Ron
