IMSMC Christmas Lunch 2016

Oh what a day! Once again our annual Christmas Lunch was held, on what ended up being close to 38C and 95% humidity!... But 140 members and family were not deterred, as we enjoyed a wonderful meal and cool drinks at Trattoria La Vigna in Camden.

Smiles and cheer all round, as we shared in the Christmas spirit.

Presentations took place as we recognised Alessandro Di Rocco (our Blog Master), Rob Losinno (our CMC delegate) and Elissa Losinno (our Facebook master) for their efforts throughout the year – Thanks guys! We also presented Gianni Roccisano (Owner of the restaurant) with a plaque, recognising him for his sponsorship of our annual Concorso @ Gough Whitlam Park.

As proceedings unfolded, we held our raffle – a Huge thank you to our sponsors, providing excellent reward for all!
Suddenly, as all was unfolding – A SURPRISE VISIT FROM SANTA – to the delight of children and adults alike! Gifts for all – Thanks for the Christmas stockings and Panettoni Santa! This Santa, we think, was the “real” Santa... mmmmmmmmm...

Our traditional Mille Foglie cake was offered to all and before long (like all good things) the day came to a close with a Christmas Cheer.!

A wonderful result, capping off another eventFULL year from our VIBRANT Club.

Thank you to all our participating members that have been part of our successful club throughout 2016. We hope the Christmas spirit is alive within your families.

Have a Happy & Safe Festive season – best wishes to all in your family and to your friends.

Stay safe, be well and see you all next year!

Thank you!
