POINTers IN PERSON Minutes
Chapter # 10 Central Texas/Austin
Submitted by: Sherry PACELLI Haddox (#4883)
Lin ONOFRIO Brinkman (#1388) opened our monthly meeting with 10 present, including new member Frank Scalise of San Antonio, formerly of Chicago.
Lin reminded everyone of the POINT potluck Christmas party at the home of Dorothy MANGO ONOFRIO Lippincott and Bill and Lin ONOFRIO Brinkman on December 2nd.
Lin gave us the meeting dates for 2008.
Jeanie MARSALIA (#4251) told the group that her son, Shane Mahon, forwarded a website to her from their ancestral town of Monastero di Lanzo, Italy that had a listing of churches. It described the Santuario Di Marsaglia which is their family name from that town. They plan to visit Italy in 2008 and hope to find out more about it. The website is: www.vallidilanzo.to.it/icomuni/monast.html.
Jeanie mentioned that she read an article on the internet on November 20th that revealed that the sanctuary of Rome's "founder" had been revealed by archaeologists. It explained what the ancient Romans believed about the founding of their city by legendary founder Romulus and his twin brother Remus.
The meeting adjourned at 8:30pm. The next meeting will be January 23rd at Merrill Gardens in Round Rock.
