Happy Mother’s Day! 🌹

Wishing all our mothers a very happy Mother’s Day. We hope you can still have a great day catching up with your kids any which way you can. It won’t be long before we can once again enjoy each other’s company.

Easter message from the President of the Societa Isole Eolie

Dear Members and Friends,
I hope you are all keeping well and safe in the new housebound lifestyle that has been necessarily imposed due to Covid-19. I know some of our community may be experiencing difficult times and financial hardship and worse for our fellow countrymen in Italy and other places around the world – our thoughts and prayers are with them.

I hope we all come through this alive and well, with renewed enthusiasm for the little things in life and an enhanced appreciation of our friends and family, which we cannot be with at this time. I can assure you that we will make up for it and celebrate once this nightmare is over!
At the Società Isole Eolie, the Committee is equally affected by the restrictions on gatherings and will not be able to physically meet and have our usual boisterous monthly meetings. Regretfully, we are not able to have any of our usual social functions until further notice. I am sure you understand the situation. On a more positive note, we will look at ways to provide some online webinars where possible, via our Facebook site and newly updated Website at If you have any suggestions as to what we could be doing for our community, please let us know.
In the meantime, the Società wishes you and your family a Happy Easter!
Sam Portelli, President
10th April 2020

Messaggio Pasquale

Cari Membri e Amici,
Spero che vi stiate mantenendo bene e al sicuro nel nuovo stile di vita legato alla casa che è stato necessariamente imposto a causa di Covid-19. So che alcuni membri della nostra comunità potrebbero vivere momenti difficili e difficoltà finanziarie e, peggio ancora, per i nostri connazionali in Italia e in altri luoghi del mondo - i nostri pensieri e le nostre preghiere sono con loro.

Spero che tutti riusciremo a vivere in modo vivo e vegeto, con rinnovato entusiasmo per le piccole cose della vita e un maggiore apprezzamento per i nostri amici e familiari, con cui non possiamo stare al momento. Posso assicurarti che lo compenseremo e festeggeremo una volta che l'incubo è finito!
Alla Società Isole Eolie, il Comitato è ugualmente colpito dalle restrizioni sugli incontri e non sarà in grado di incontrarsi fisicamente e tenere i nostri soliti incontri mensili chiassosi. Purtroppo, non siamo in grado di avere nessuna delle nostre solite funzioni sociali fino a nuovo avviso. Sono sicuro che capisci la situazione. Su una nota più positiva, esamineremo i modi per fornire alcuni webinar online ove possibile, tramite il nostro sito Facebook e il sito Web appena aggiornato all'indirizzo Se hai suggerimenti su cosa potremmo fare per la nostra comunità, faccelo sapere.
Nel frattempo, la Società augura a te e famiglia una buona Pasqua!
