Circolo’s Annual Holiday Party: Festa di Natale 2011

Festa di Natale 2011

In December, 2011, Circolo held their annual Holiday Party. The evening was made even more festive since three  Santa Barbara Italian-American organizations came together to sponsor the dinner: the Italian-American Boot Club, UNICO S.B. and Circolo Italiano.

Held at the lovely Santa Barbara Yacht Club, the evening also celebrated the extraordinary life and career of the Honorable Judge Ruggero J. Aldisert.  Along with his many accomplishments, Rugi, was the first Italian-American to be appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals by President Johnson in August 1968 and was he celebrating his 50th Anniversary on the Bench.

It was a very special evening celebrating a very special man!

The 2012 Holiday Party is scheduled for December 6th…mark your calendars now. You won’t want to miss it!
