UIS Picnic This Sunday, June 24th

Buongiorno!

This Sunday at noon is our United Italian Society Family Picnic at Fernbank Park.

We are in the Riverview Shelter (our usual location) with a nice view of the river and hopefully a nice breeze. The shelter is not far from the large playground and bike path for the kids.

Fernbank Park is in Sayler Park, about 11 1/2 miles west of downtown on US 50 / River Road. 

The address is 50 Thornton Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45211.

The UIS is providing Italian Sausage sandwiches, plates, napkins and utensils. You bring your drinks and please bring a side dish to share. 

This is just a relaxing day by the river with good friends and good food. There are no structured activities so just show up about noon and enjoy the day.

Hope to see you there!

Calling All Cooks!

Our members always look forward to an authentic Italian meal prepared by our chefs. We need volunteers for most of 2017. Please consider taking a month to prepare an entrée, side dish, dessert or the whole meal.
Please see Cindy Meale for details.

Members of UIS can sign in to the website to view the Food Prep Checklist for helpful hints for preparing enough food to feed your amici.

Valentine Dance and Sponsors

We had a very enjoyable Valentine Dance with good food, enjoyable music, and great company. The website has been updated with 43 ads from those who sponsored a table at the dance with their $25 donation to the UIS Scholarship Fund.  Thanks to all who attended and those that donated gift baskets and other items to make the dance a success!

No July Meeting

A Message from the President

There is NO July meeting. Enjoy the holiday and we will see you on the 2nd of August.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the UIS Family Picnic this past Sunday and special thanks to the cooks, Dave Sabatelli and Earl Einhaus and the setup crew, Phil Sabatelli, Paul Wagner, Sandy Sabatelli and Rose Einhaus.

Since the departure of Fr. Earl Fernandes, Sacred Heart no longer says Mass in Italian, but the church still needs our support. The Italian groups have made the first Sunday of each month as ‘Italian Sunday’ at Sacred Heart Church and ask for your support at the 9:00 a.m. Mass those days.
