CIAO is hosting its annual picnic and meeting at Russell Joy Park (upper pavilion) on July 27 at noon. The picnic is open to members, their guests and anyone interested in learning about CIAO, its activities or who would like to join. The club's purpose is to educate, encourage and promote Italian culture in the community. New members are always welcome. To help promote a family atmosphere, children under the age of 12 are free, so bring your grandchildren and children to an enjoyable day of food and fun.
