Abruzzo…. Strong and Gentle

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE FADM

AS WE PREPARE FOR THE AUTUMN AND WINTER SEASONS, WE REFLECT ON THE PREVIUOS THREE SEASONS OF 2022.  DURING THE WINTER OF 2022 MANY OF US WERE STILL CAUTIOUS OF THE CO-VID SITUATION AND RIGHTFULLY SO.  OUR MEMBERS CONTINUED TO SUPPORT OUR MONTHLY DINNER MEETINGS WHICH WE HAD PRESENTATIONS AND GUEST SPEAKERS.  THE SPIRIT AND FELLOWSHIP OF OUR MEMBERS WAS VERY EVIDENT AS WE LOOKED OUT FOR EACH OTHER AND OUR FAMILES.  OUR MONTHLY DINNER CLUB EVENTS AT ITALIAN RESTARAUNTS WAS A HUGE SUCCESS AS WE TRAVELED TO DIFFERENT EATARIES IN JANUARY, FEBRUSARY, MARCH, APRIL, AND MAY.  WE ALSO STARTED TWO SOCCER TEAMS, ONE A YOUTH PROGRAM, AND ONE AN ADULT PROGRAM.  OUR PARTICIPATION WITH THE FADM FLOAT IN THE ST. CLAIR SHORES MEMORIAL DAY PARADE WAS CHEERED ON BY THOUSANDS OF SPECTATORS IN THE PROCESSING ROUTE.  THE PARADE DIRECTOR GAVE OUR FLOAT A SPECIAL COMMENDATION.  IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN OUR FLOAT, YOU MUST AT THE NEXT PARADE, WE PARTICIPATE IN. 

IN JUNE WE PARTICIPATED AT THE FESTA DELLA REPUBLICA WITH OUR ABRUZZESE APPETIZERS. THE FADM ALSO STARED AN ADULT BOCE PROGRAM WHERE 40 PLAYERS PARTICIPATED DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.  IN JULY WE CELEBRATED OUR FADM PICNIC WITH CLOSE TO 300 ATTENDEES. THE GAMING CHARITY FUND RAISERS WERE ALSO RESUMED AFTER 2 YEARS IN JULY AND AUGUST WITH ONE MORE TO COME IN NOVEMBER.  DURING THE ITALIAN FESTIVAL, THE FADM HOSTED A TWO-DAY YOUTH SOCCER SKILLS CAMP FOR ANY CHILD AND THEY WERE ALSO GIVEN A FADM T-SHIRT.  THE CAMP WAS WELL ATTENDED DURING THE 2 DAYS.  OUR PINNACLE EVENT, THE FADM GALA WILL AGAIN RESUME THIS OCTOBER AND IT IS ANTICIPATED WITH GREAT EXCITEMENT.  WE ALSO ARE LOOKING FORWARD WITH OUR CHRISTMAS DINNER DANCE, AND A CHILDREN’S PARTY WITH THE AIO CLUB.  OUR COMMUNITY RECOGNITION IS HIGLY REGARDED AS THIS YEAR’S MAN OF THE YEAR FOR THE COLUMBUS DAY EVENT IS OUR VERY OWN TONINO CORSETTI, AND THE HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR IS OUR HONORARY MEMBER FATHER ENZO ADARI. IN OUR MAY GENERAL MEETING WE WERE THE FIRST EVER CLUB TO HONOR THE ITALIAN TRIBUNE WHICH HAS BEEN AN INFORMATIONAL MEDIA FOR OUR ITALIAN COMMUNITY FOR OVER 119 YEARS.

DUE TO VARIUOS CIRCUMSTANCES A FEW ACTIVITIES SCHEDULED HAD TO BE CANCELED.  THESE INCLUDE “SAPORE ABRUZZO CHARITY DINNER”, ‘CARS, CULINARY, AND CARE DINNER”, THE SELFRIDEGE AIR SHOW, AND THE NORTHERN MICHIGAN BUS TRIP.  WE HOPE TO RECHEDULE SOME OF THESE EVENT IN 2023.  ALL OF THE ABOVE ACTIVITIES ARE ONLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE DEDICATION AND HARD WORK OF OUR VOLUNTEERS AND CHAIRPERSONS. AND MEMBERS WHO SUPPORT THEM.  I SALUTE ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS AND MEMBERS IN KEEPING WITH OUR MOTTO, FORTE AND GENTILE.
