Out n About With Sons of Italy
The extended Sons of Italy family is very involved within the community, and sometimes a camera is on hand or the event is covered in the media. Here are some of the recent activities.
SOI was at the sod turning for the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre on August 22, 2019. Pictured are Scott Oake, Mario Posillipo, Anne Oake and Tom De Nardi.
Scott Oake very graciously thanked us again for the generosity we extended by having the Bruce Oake Memorial Fund as our 2019 Charity of Choice at our annual Gala. The fund raised $300,000 at our gala

On November 24, 2013 the Fogolar Association of Manitoba held a luncheon and unveiling of a new bookcase and 333 books donated to the Dante Alighieri. The books are a collection from the Fogolar camp at Anola and are all in the Furlan language.
Fred Giavedoni was president of the Fogolar Assn for 8 years. His sons, Cam Giavedoni (centre) and John Giavedoni (right) and Cam's son Travis Giavedoni were in attendance. All three are Sons of Italy members.
