Monthly Members Meeting | June 2019 La Polents
June 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
YOU ARE ALL INVITED TO AN ITALIAN COMMUNITY DINNER – COME TO LA POLENTA ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5
Every Italian family has an old photo of a big family dinner – long tables
placed end to end covered in tablecloths or sheets, laid out with silverware,
plates, napkins, bottles of wine, carafes of water, and food…oh, the food.
Dads, moms, kids, aunts and uncles, best friends, and nonni squeezed in
around the table on chairs of every size and style. There was that feeling
of belonging – of family and of community.
The Amici d’Italia, Club Paesano, and the Portland-Bologna Sister City
Association are teaming up to present an “Italian family” event, a community
dinner called La Polenta, and we are inviting all the Italian clubs and
individuals to join in and gather around the table.
The Polenta is on Wednesday, June 5 in the Lodge at Cedarville Park,
3800 W. Powell Loop in Gresham. Arrive at 6:00pm to help set up; dinner will be on the table at 7:30pm; we will
all clear the table and clean up about 9:00pm. Your only cost is to bring one bottle of wine!
This is an event with no agenda, simply a time for la famiglia italiana to sit together around a communal
table. And just like any Italian family dinner, everyone will help set up, serve, and clean up.
The dinner consists of polenta with meat sauce (vegetarian option available) served family-style on large platters
in the center of the table, salad, bread, and dessert. There will be non-alcoholic beverages for the bambini.
Coffee and water will be available too. A simple meal, shared by friends and family.
Please RSVP today so we know how much sauce and polenta to prepare! Contact Mike Farley at 503-358-
2506; or Kerry-Lynne Demarinis Brown at 503-287-3255 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be no Club Paesano Board meeting at this event.
