Marrickville Italian Festa

On Sunday the 23rd of May, our club was represented at the Marrickville Festa Italiana by Joe lecce & Joe Di Marti with their 2 Fiat 500's.

The weather looked threatening, but rain, hail or shine - the Festa went on! Complete with complimentary "fine Home made Italian Food", gelato and coffee for the entire day.

The morning passed along with fine Italian coffee and home made biscuits. Lunch was provided with antipasto, pasta, Italian sausage, salad, fresh bread, a good glass of wine and of course, another fine coffee!

A live floor show and a variety of "musica Italiana" could be heard all day creating a real Italian Atmosphere. Our cars created a great deal of interest, with many club profiles handed out on the day. So much interest in our cars, infact, that Marrickville Council organised a full time security guard to keep an eye on things, just in case someone wanted to put one of the cars in their back pack! A great number of familiar faces also acknowledged the presence of our club at this conmmunity event.

Many thanks to Joe Di Marti, Joe Lecce & very good friend of IMSMC; Frank Crema - for taking the time to represent our Club at the Festa. Marrickville Council has expressed their greatest words of appreciation.
