Liberation Day

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

liberationbandWe had quite a day yesterday Saturday, April 25, 2009.  It was Italian Liberation Day-celebrating liberation from the Nazis and Mussolini.  Funny that there was no mention  who liberated them.

The community band led the way of the Mayor and other dignitaries, who gave brief speeches and laid wreaths to honor those local folk who gave up their lives during WWII.  The day started with a 10k run, and included a big cookout behind the fortress to raise money for the youth soccer clubs.  There was a volleyball tournament at the school and the village was filled with visitors and families had barbeques and get-togethers!  Everything but the fireworks.bannerliberationday
