Viva l'Italia!


We’re in for a treat with our next Passports and Pastimes presenters!  Three of our retirees will be sharing about their travels at different times to Italy – Mary Lou Fish, Diana Ward, and Dorothy Zinsmeister.  Not only will we hear stories and see photographs, but we’ll also get to taste a little of Italy with samples of a recipe that Mary Lou learned in a cooking class that she attended while there.

Date and Time:  Friday, February 20, 2015 @ 10:00 a.m.

Place:  Town Point, Room 4130
