WELCOME AUTUMN DINNER
Saturday, September 23, 2023 6:00 PM
The arrival of autumn is filled with meaning for the Italians. For many, life
revolves around the harvest of grapes immediately followed by the olive harvest.
It is a time of celebration and innumerable festivals – a time for reuniting friends
and family under the late summer sky – the last outdoor party of 2023.
Continuing the annual tradition of celebrating the seasons, we invite you to join
us on the Piazza in your best Fall finery. Have fun, use your imagination, and
come dressed in GOLDS, BROWNS, ORANGES, YELLOWS, OR ANYTHING THAT
CELEBRATES THE AUTUMN EQUINOX.
