The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) holds a number of events and activities each year: u to 6 general membership meetings per year, including a wine tasting; the annual Ferragosto picnic; and Carnevale. These events are sponsored by AMHS or held in conjunction with other Italian American organizations. AMHS also promotes the events and activities of other Italian American organizations in the Washington, DC area.
Our next event is the general membership meeting, scheduled for Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 1:00PM in Casa Italiana. Please join us in welcoming back author Paul Paolicelli, the author of “Under the Southern Sun” and “Dances with Luigi”. Paul will tell us about the time he spent in Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, and Sicily while studying the effect of emigration from Southern Italy to America and the many resulting success stories that changed America. Paul will also tell us about his ambitious program at the University of Calabria. Prior to the lunch and program, the Society will install the officers and three members of the Board. We will have a raffle with some wonderful prizes. Members, $20.00; non-members, $25.00. RSVP by 6:00PM on January 22, 2020.
