Sunday July 26th - 3 PM - Holy Rosary Church - 911 Missouri Ave, Kansas City 64106. Ciao paesani! We have scheduled our next meeting for Sunday, July 26th. This will be a combination of a meeting and our club's three year anniversary!

We will be discussing plans for the upcoming year, the book project, and we will talk about the Festa di San Giuseppe in Campofelice coming up in August. We will have a drawing for door prizes and a 50/50 cash raffle. The lucky winner receives half of the "pot" (cash collected from ticket sales) and the club receives the other half.

The cost of dinner for members is $5 and the cost for non-members is $8. There is no charge for children under 12. Here are the details for the meeting:

When: Sunday, July 26th @ 3:00 PM
Where: Holy Rosary Catholic Church
Scalabrini Hall

Dinner includes Italian sausage or meatball sandwiches, pasta salad, cucumber-tomato-onion salad, chips, and spumoni ice cream for dessert. Water will be provided but, soft drinks and wine are extra. Please feel free to bring friends and family with you. The more the merrier! The cost for dinner for non-members is $8 per person.

Please R.S.V.P. to (816) 680-0018 or jhvalet@aol.com by July 22nd. (We want to make sure we have enough food for everyone!!)

July 8th marks the three year anniversary of Club Campofelice di Fitalia. This past year we have had a lot of fun. We hope our club continues to grow and we plan on having even more fun over the next year. There has been an outpouring of support from Campofelicesi around the world. It truly is amazing that the people from Campofelice di Fitalia have such a strong connection!

We need your continued support to keep our club going strong! Our club membership dues are due each year in July. Attached is a membership application. You do not need to fill it out unless your information has changed. The cost of our membership dues will remain the same as last year but, due to the increased cost of everything there will be a $5 charge for members for our meetings unless it is a potluck dinner. You can either mail your dues in or bring them to the meeting. For those of you who enjoy our gatherings but, do not have roots in Campofelice di Fitalia please join our club. All are welcome among the Campofelicesi!

Our book project has fallen to the wayside again but, we now have a deadline. All entries must be submitted by September 1st. "From Campofelice di Fitalia to Kansas City" will tell the stories of the immigrants from Campofelice that came to Kansas City. Marirose Seferovich will take a book and present it to the town for the museum when she visits at the end of September. Each immigrant will get a 2-3 page layout. One page will be used for pictures and one for the history of the family. If more room is needed than 2 pages we can extend it to 3. The book will be in color and you will be able to purchase a copy. We plan to arrange the book in alphabetical order by surname. We want to include all Campofelicesi in this book whether they are a member of our club or not.

Please spread the word to all of your family members. There is no cost to include your family in the book. You will need to provide pictures and your family story. Please bring your pictures to the meeting if you do not have computer access. If you have computer access you can e-mail your pictures and information to jhvalet@aol.com. Thanks to all of you that have already submitted your information. Please contact Jody @ (816) 680-0018 or jhvalet@aol.com if you have any questions.

We hope to see you all there!
