ST. PATRICK'S DINNER  -- March 15, 2014

This seems like an unlikely Italian event, but we "fill the Lodge" when we
St. Patrick's Daycook our famous corned beef and cabbage with all of the trimmings.  Along with dinner, we also feature some local talent such as Starship Enterprise or Kids Unlimited.  This event is also open to the public.

WELCOME HOME VIETNAM VETERANS DAY – March 29, 2014         Vietnam Veterans Logo

 

This event at the Redding Veterans Memorial Hall at 1605 Yuba Street is dedicated to Vietnam veterans.  The day starts with a procession to the Igo Veterans Cemetery to honor those who have passed away followed by music, lunch, and displays (including a Huey helicopter).  The Sons of Italy, Shasta Lodge #2453, has provided lunch since the inception of this project.  We serve a pasta main dish with salad and bread.  It is our honor to partner with Vietnam Veterans of America—Chapter #357 to make this a memorable day for veterans and their families.  The public is invited to attend free of charge.  The picture below is a prototype of the monument to be built at the Igo Veterans Cemetery in Northern California.

PAESANO DAYS  --  Cancelled for 2014                                        
          Baskets

What began as an Italian picnic has become a two and a half day event to continue our culture and heritage, featuring a three-day bocce ball tournament.  This is a popular event held at Anderson River Park for the families in our community.  This is a nice way to spend a hot summer night by the cool Sacramento River.  We have served as many as 1,400 pasta dinners Friday night and lots of meatballs, sausage, salad, and ice cream, and cannolis on Saturday.  Dancing is available Friday night and kids games on Saturday.  This year we will have a fun walk/run on the beautiful river trail.  If you are interested in participating, click on the Fun Run Application and send before August 1.  Many crafters set up for the weekend selling their wares.  We also feature many baskets, gift certificates, and a Grand Prize that you have an opportunity to win.  This is one of our biggest fundraisers and fun for the whole family.
