SOUTHBRIDGE – The Italian Picnic at Southbridge’s Italian Club on North Street has drawn another large crowd this year. With classic Italian hospitality, family-friendly activities and games, lively music and of course, plenty of delicious food, the event drew many from Southbridge and beyond. Pictured in our gallery are Joseph Early, Worcester County District Attorney and candidates for various offices: Jen Caissie (for Governor’s Council), Tom Meroli (for State Senate), Katie Toomey (for Register of Deeds) and Joanne Powell and Dennis McManus for Clerk of Courts. Father Juan Herrera of Saint John Paul II Parish in Southbridge is also pictured.
“This is a great community event, great for families. We are all about family here,” said Mike Bonadies.
“The new generation is doing an amazing job with the club,” remarks Sal LeDonne, who led the club for many years. “It is great for the town of Southbridge,” he continued.
