It’s never a dull moment every October when we celebrate the Italian contributions to our nation and revel in the celebrations of all things Italian! We have lots of events happening this month to help promote Italian cultural identity, help preserve the Italian historical assets in San Diego, and help homeless children at Washington Elementary. We hope to see you at one of our events!
