POINTers IN PERSON Minutes
Chapter # 10 Central Texas/Austin
Submitted by: Sherry PACELLI Haddox (#4883)
Lin ONOFRIO Brinkman (#1399) opened the meeting with 11 present. The attendees nibbled on imported Italian roasted chestnuts during the meeting. It was the first time the members who are from Texas had ever eaten chestnuts.
Lin reported that she inherited some Galiano Italian soldier decanters when her godmother, Theresa BENCIVENGO Rice, died.
None of the members had learned anything regarding genealogy to report although there was much conversation about all things Italian.
Everyone enjoyed the time spent together.
Lin reminded everyone of the annual potluck Christmas party at their home on December 13th. She requested everyone bring an Italian dish to share.
The meeting adjourned at 8:00pm. We will not have a regular meeting in December. Our next meeting will be in January.
The dates for all the 2010 meetings will be announced later.
