The women of the Vittoria Lodge Auxiliary held a marathon biscotti baking session on Saturday, July 10 to bake biscotti to sell a the Viva L’Italia festival. They worked hard and accomplished a lot of biscotti. Below is a slideshow of a lot of fun in the kitchen!
The Vittoria Lodge held its annual dinner on Sunday, June 13, 2010 at the lodge hall. Before a delicious meal of pasta and chicken was served, lodge president Jim Forneris completed the hall remodeling project by attaching the last piece of trim. The meal was followed by a program which included a review of the successful year by Jim and auxiliary president Julie Jennings. Outgoing auxiliary president Mary Ladurini was also presented with a bouquet of flowers in honor of her many years of service to the group.
Photos of this year’s event can be viewed in the Vittoria Lodge Photo Albums.

Over the past two months, members of the Vittoria Lodge have been hard at work remodelling the main hall of the lodge building. New walls, ceiling and lighting are the highlight of the project. The panoramic photos below are courtesy of member Rick Hutcheson. If you are interested in using the hall for your event, please see our Lodge Building Usage page for more information.

Santa stopped to pay a visit to the Vittoria Lodge on Sunday, December 13th, where coincidentally lodge members and their children/grandchildren were enjoying a potluck dinner. After a hearty meal and some quality time with Santa, members headed to the Italian American Cultural Center to participate in the Santa Lucia activities. Here are some photos of Santa updating his list with some good boys and girls.
From the Vittoria Lodge archives, photos from the 1983 annual dinner are now available on the Vittoria Lodge Photo Album page.
