Dear Friend of the Italian Community:
In 2009 The Italian American Veterans (IAV) Post 1 of Lorain, Ohio decided to host its
first Italian Festival "Festa Italiana" to expanded the understanding and awareness of Italian
immigrants and recognize the contributions of Italian American Veterans. The year's
CELEBRATION will be on Saturday, October 21 starting at Noon. The Festa will include Italian
music, homemade food, baked goods and raffles. The Festa also serves as a fundraiser for ongoing
maintenance, repairs and renovations to the Post which serves the community.
The volunteer committee of the IAV Post 1 would like to give you the opportunity to sponsor
this event or provide a donation. All contributors will be recognized for their generosity during the
Festa in their program, on the IAV Post 1 website plus announcements throughout the day. Please
consider financially supporting the 2017 Festa Italiana with a tabx deductible donation. We are grateful
for any and all contributions. Thank you in advance for your contributions and support.
Lastly, we invite you, your family and friends to join us on October 21 to celebrate this cultural
event. If you have any questions please contact: Dina Ferrer, Festival Chair, at 440-989-1178.
