IMSMC Christmas Party 2013

Sunday 24th November 2013 saw 175 members and family celebrate Christmas 2013 at Terranova Bar and Restaurant at Horsley Park. On arrival, our members were greeted by the friendly staff, serving pizza appetisers. Soon afterwards, we were seated, and greeted by the president - then the abundance of food, wine and great company began!

More pizza, pasta, antipasto, grilled octopus followed (that was a light entree!), Then three types of pasta, including a marinara which was exceptional.. in case members were still hungry, beef and pork roast were served as the main meal...did i mention the wine?! The day progressed with more laughter and interaction, when unexpectedly we were surprised by a visit from Santa! All the children received a stocking of chocolate goodies! We would like to thank everyone for supporting our raffle - a special mention to our sponsors: Rose Cara donating a special coffee perculator, Charlie Losinno a car battery charger, Lino &; Ori De Iulio a first aid emergency car kit, Nulon for an array of coolant, cleaning and lubricants.

Nina Stillone for her special homemade biscotti (and tray) and Sight Savers Optometrists (relative of family Losinno) for a His & Hers set of sunglasses, Also the Mediati family also donated a Christmas doll.  To commemorate Christmas(and sticking with tradition) everyone received a mini panettone (Italian Christmas cake), adding to the Christmas celebration and spirit.

A special mention to the staff of Terranova - their service was exceptional and professional - with every guest catered for to the extreme. Their presentation, service and quality of food is truly commendable and greatly appreciated by like-minded, hard working organisers of a wonderfully memorable celebration! On behalf of the committee, thank you to everyone who participated in evernts throughout 2013. Have a happy and safe festive season. We look forward to a prosperous 2014.
