Dunmore’s Keystone Chapter UNICO conducted its October dinner meeting at the new Colarusso’s Coal Fire Pizza in Dickson City, formerly Al Mia Amore. Keystone UNICO members were the first customers to experience dining in their newly renovated banquet room, featuring all COVID-19 protocol. The dinner was delicious and the accommodations were perfect.
In keeping with October being Italian Heritage and Culture Month, Chapter member Mary Ann Stoppini gave an interesting review of Dianne Hales’ book “La Passione”. Its theme is “Everything in Italy is done with passion and there probably would be no real passion in the world without Italians.”
Also discussed was Keystone’s upcoming Pasta Dinner fundraiser for local charities and scholarships. Dinner will be available for take-out or dine-in at Villa Maria at 1610 Washburn Street, West Scranton, on Sunday, Nov. 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and includes penne pasta, meatballs, salad, bread, and cake for dessert. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased by contacting Frank or Mary Ann Coviello at 570-344-3737 or any chapter member. Pre-sales are encouraged and there will be a limited number of tickets at the door.
