Unity, Reflection, Advocacy, and Action ~ Figli di Trappeto 11th International Women’s Day Celebration

international-womens-day-gloucester-2017-4A wonderful time was had by all at the Festa della Donna celebration, hosted by Figli di Trappeto, and held Saturday evening at the Gloucester House Restaurant. The guests included a tremendous group of Cape Ann’s community-spirited women.

Each year a special guest is recognized for her commitment to the people of Gloucester and Cape Ann. Gloucester’s beloved Rosaria Giambanco-Floyd was honored for her generosity towards the ill, the elderly, the homeless, and especially for the care and love she provides to members of the community who are suffering from cancer.

Everyone was decked out in masks and beads and the Gloucester House was sparkling in the gold, green, and purple Mardi Gras themed decor, created by committee members Crocetta Groppo, Josephine Taormina, Enza Taormina, Fay Puopolo, Nancy Millefoglie, Faye Pavia, Kathy Numerosi, Geri Parisi, and Jackie Zappa. After a delicious dinner of fried chicken and baked haddock, dancing, and a hysterical adult version of scavenger hunt/musical chairs, kept the audience entertained.
