Italian American Society of Marco Island’s Bocce Picnic



The annual Italian American Society of Marco Island’s Bocce Picnic was held recently at Mackle Park. Members and guests were invited to attend a wonderful barbeque of hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, Italian sausage, pasta salad and cole slaw catered by Kretch’s Restaurant. Over eighty members and guests were on hand and all had a wonderful time with the weather picture perfect.

Coffee and dessert were done by the “best bakers on the island,” the Italian American Society’s members.

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes were given out to the winners of the Bocce tournament. This year all the winners were women and the applause was ecstatic as the tournament included teams of men and women together.

1st place went to Margherita Spina, 2nd place went to Michele Paolucci and 3rd place (tie) went to Lorraine Dobies Marici and Tina DiBiase (who couldn’t attend).

The Bocce picnic was chaired by Manny Puglisi (642-7527) and Elio Morgante (393-4152).

Dale Johnson, Treasurer, was the announcer with the bull horn (394-4952).

The Italian American Society of Marco Island’s Inter Club Bocce Tournament is played each year with no permanent teams and everyone plays for themselves. Members play with different people each week and earn points for themselves on how well they do.
