2019 Membership Breakfast

Sunday February 3, saw 120 members & family participate in our membership breakfast, starting the new year and our first club event for 2019.

A huge thankyou to all that attended and WELCOME to a number of new members.

The Staff of the CSI Club are congratulated for the presentation of the hall. A huge THANKYOU to our member Frank Roccisano, along with his staff, for their superb effort in providing our food, catering for our breakfast needs on the day.

The atmosphere was extremely pleasant and everyone enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, including  eggs ( 3 types), bacon, potato gems, sausages, mushroom, tomato, toast and crusty Italian bread rolls ( BIG BREAKFAST),  apple & orange juice, a coffee and a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Members and family  celebrated and "welcomed in" the new year, whilst enjoying the air conditioned comfort and the exclusive use of the club facilities. The cars looked great, with close to fifty beautiful Italian machines parked alongside each other, in clear view of the guests.

We were also in the company of two ambassadors from the Liguria region of Italy, with ties to the Fiat 500 Club of Italy in Garlenda. Their aim is to maintain the awareness of the Italian culture abroad - promoting the achievements and global contributions that Italy has contributed to our heritage. This "sentiment"  is certainly evident in our club! A huge effort from members Charlie Losinno, with Maria and Andy Mendes Lopes accompanied by Sonny, who picked up our two guests from the Sydney Wharf Terminal, bringing our two guests to our breakfast. They experienced a glorious drive day and view of Sydney harbour, driving over the Sydney harbour bridge in classic Fiat 500's. Thank you guys for making it happen!
Our traditional raffle was well supported by members and sponsors, which contributed to the wonderful atmosphere of the day.

Welcome to 2019. We have "so much" in the planning, which we are certain, will lead to another memorable Italian Made year!
