IMSMC Christmas Party

On Sunday the 20th of November over 100 members, family and friends attended our 2011 Christmas lunch at Il Piatto Restaurant in Horsley Park.

It was wonderful to see so many Italian machines in the restaurant car park. A special mention to the members that braved the heat (without an air conditioner in their classic!).

By 11:30am, the restaurant was abuzz. Members continued to arrive while the outside temperature approached 37C mark. soon enough, appetizers & aperitifs (spuntino e aperitivo) - were served.

The "atmosfera Italiana" was extremely evident as the entree's, mains, cake and coffee were brought to our tables by the very competent staff at Il Piatto restaurant - refreshments were plentiful...the staff at Il Piatto truly met every expectation and performed their task with 100% accuracy and competence! Thank you Il Piatto!

A Club raffle was held after lunch - the prizes offered by our club sponsors and great supporters, Yvonne Legge (Ellen Di Rocco's mum), members Dino Capozzi, Frances & Gerardo Mediati, Gladesville Auto Body Works (Nat Stillone), Mastertouch Automotive (Maurizio & Lucy Puglisi) and Prodata Pty Ltd. Thank you also to "Campisi Delicatessen" (member Tony Campisi), who made it possible to allow the Club to offer every person a Mini Panettone.

A wonderful conclusion to 2011. Thank you to each member that has been active throughout 2011. Thank you for sharing in the IMSMC spirit. We look forward to another year of diverse events in 2012.

On behalf of the committee, we wish you all, along with your family and friends, a very Happy, safe and Holy Christmas. May 2011 end well for you all and that 2012, be your best year to date.

Buon Natale!
