"The SCA Celebrates
Sa Die De Sa Sardigna"
Many Sardinians have made their home in Melbourne, becoming exemplary law-abiding citizens, yet very proud of their origins.
As a flow on from the above, as the case for many years, on 29/04/2018 the SCA celebrated "Sa Die De Sa Sardigna", by way of a convivial lunch at the Club Italia in Sunshine,
As on past occasions this was a memorable day which, by way of a summary commemorates ”The awakening of the Sardinian people, by way of a revolt, on 28 April 1794, against the domination of Piedmont in Sardinia". This courageous act stated the process which resulted in what we now know as the Autonomous Region of Sardinia.
The day was celebrated together with family, Sardinian and non-Sardinian friends and plenty of joy.
A traditional Sardinian Menu was served, which comprised an "Antipasto Rustico, Mallorredus & Maiale Arrosto". Undoubtedly the highlight was the colourful homemade Sardinian biscuits and "Seadas".
For those who may not know "Seadas", is a pastry based dessert filled with "Pecorino" cheese, fried and served covered in sugar or honey. It may sound weird however, this mixture of ingredients, textures and flavours is most likely a flavour you’ve never had and will never get tired of.
Both the President of Club Italia - Margaret Giudice and Vice President of the SCA - Ylenia Useli (President - Paul Lostia was not able to attend due to family reasons) gave a warm welcome and best wishes to all present, as well as wishing the SCA's long-time Secretary and past President - Angelo Ledda a speedy recovery following a recent health scare.
Ylenia also thanked Margaret and kitchen/waitering staff for the hospitality shown to the SCA over many years.
Speial thanks were also extended to to SCA Committee Member Tonina Nolis, for having prepared the Sardinian Sweets, and past Committee Member Iole Marino for having voluntarily provided two raffle prizes
The entertainment provided by "Joe R." which saw many of us dancing during the day, was most appreciated.
In closing it was noted that all left feeling most satisfied with the day's proceedings and looked forward to many more such celebrations to come !!
