Il Circolo, the Italian Cultural Society of the Palm Beaches, Florida, held a special celebration recognizing October as Italian Heritage Month held at Palermo’s in Boynton Beach. Chairpersons Robert De Angelis and Sally Valenti arranged for a four-course dinner prepared by owner/chef Anna Orlando to be served outdoors, under the warm, evening skies. While Italian music played and the wine flowed, the 100 members and guests joined in the camaraderie, ready for the new season’s gatherings.
In his greeting, President Paul Finizio thanked all those whose tireless efforts have successfully brought Il Circolo to its 42nd year in the community. They helped bring awareness of the cultural contributions made by Italians and Italian Americans which are evident throughout the world. He saluted Jim Guttuso, former president of Il Circolo, who came with his wife, Lucy.
Il Circolo thanked Senator Maria Sachs, whose driving force achieved the proclamation marking October as Italian Heritage Month in the State of Florida and honors all those who celebrate it. Visit ilcircoloflorida.org for more information about upcoming events.
