Italian Festival a success

Sending out grazie mille (thanks a million) to Montolivia Winery, Grandewood Designs, Olive Vitality, Trattoria Milano, Bear River Pasta, Raley’s and Tess’s Kitchen for their contributions to the basket worth more than $500 that was raffled in the Cultural Pavilion at this year’s Italian Festival.
