The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) holds a number of events and activities including 6 general Society 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 helps to promote the events and activities of other Italian American organizations in the Washington, DC area.

The next AMHS general Society meeting is scheduled for March 24, 2019 at Alfio’s La Trattoria, 4515 Willard Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD.   Please join us for a wonderful program during which we will view a short film by Kirsten Keppel entitled “Ringraziamenti: The St. Joseph’s Table Tradition,” followed by her talk about how she made the film, how the tradition came about, and what this beautiful tradition means to the Italian-American community.  After the presentation, the audience is encouraged to share their experiences with other similar traditions.
