Cari Amici – Dear Friends,
it will be an exciting second half of 2023 for us at ICHF!  To our traditional line-up of events, this year we have added a new and exciting event that we are sure you will find interesting. 

Here they are:


As in the past few years, we will celebrate the summer with an ancient holiday, Ferragosto (which the Romans called  Feriae Augusti to honor their Emperor) with our traditional summer picnic in the beautiful Lower Manning Park in Montecito.
Details of this event will come your way in the second half of July. In the meantime, save Saturday, August 12th, 2023 and plan to join us at Noon for a day of fun, music, games and good food.
Save the date!


The dates are in and Anna is now in Italy looking for the perfect movies to present to our public in the evenings of the following days: September 30, October 7th and October 14th, 2023.  All Saturday evenings!
More information about the movie line-up will be sent to you at the beginning of September.
As in the past, it will be at the SBCC Fe’ Bland Forum  with a starting time of 7:30 pm. You will be glad to learn that also this year the attendance to the movies will continue to be FREE.
Save these dates! 


This new event will be held at La Cumbre Country Club on Friday, November the 3rd and will have the usual format, which is, lunch at 12 Noon followed by the presentation.

The presentation will be articulated as follows: to begin with, a short and informative introduction about the city of Pompeii in Roman times, followed by the projection of a dramatic video that recreates the tragic day and night of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24th 79 AD, event that obliterated the city of Pompeii.

Last but not the least:


This year we were lucky to get a Saturday at La Cumbre CC  so our yearly Xmas celebration will be held on Saturday, December 2nd with the usual 12:00 noon starting time.

More details on this event will come your way at the beginning of November.
