Dear Friends,

Twenty years ago Father Rusty Pandola had a dream of a small school in the Saint Leo's School building. He wanted to teach a few Italian Language classes and maybe a cultural class. Unfortunately, Father Rusty did not live to see his dream come true. But Rosalie found a friend in Father Mike and the rest is history.

Twenty years later a few classes have turned into 6 levels of Italian, including a children's level, pasta, bread, cookies, wine, sausage, cheese and lemoncello making classes. We have had Dual Citizenship classes, opera classes, book club and GED classes. Several thousand students, some of the most qualified teachers, wonderful volunteers and Rosalie have made this all possible. So we would like to celebrate our 20 years of success with samples of some of our classes.

Please join us on Saturday May 14, 2016 from 11:30 to 2:00 for an Italian Wine Seminar, a Pysanky Egg demonstration, and samples of our fresh baked bread and lemoncello.

There is no charge for the seminars but we do ask that you RSVP so we know how many people to expect. (rosalieran@yahoo.com) or 410-866-8494.We hope everyone can come and enjoy 20 years of Pandola Learning Center.

Our Learning Center would not be possible without the consistent, dedicated efforts of many caring individuals. We are blessed with supportive neighbors, parish and staff at Saint Leo's Church.

Sincerely,

Rosalie Ranieri, Principal
Sue Corasaniti, Assistant Principal
