Milton’s annual Bocce Ball Tournament took place Saturday October 16 at the Italian Cultural Centre of Milton raising funds for the centre’s roof rehabilitation. The event aptly names Beer, Bites and Bocce was a great success. The clouds and wind left just when the games were starting to make for a sunny and warm game day event. The Rotary Club of Milton also donated their time to help with the BBQ and food.
The winners this year were first place – Francesco & Rocco from the Ontario Bocce Association, second place – Jim & Ralph, and third place Tom Bello and Renzo.
The ICCM has long been part of our cultural heritage in Milton as well as serving as a community hub. It is available for rentals and is often the host for local weddings, anniversaries and banquets. It’s also the home for the everpopular Tea Room by Edwina.
The centre is open to all Miltonians and you do not need to be Italian to become a member. Several of the Directors on the all volunteer-based board that help run the centre are not Italian.
Of course, a love of Italian heritage and culture is pivotal to being able to enjoy and take part in the centre’s offerings.
