Pasta Dinner crunch time, full speed ahead!!!! April 13th is the day and it is only 4 weeks away!  We are still working to fill all of our volunteer spots for Dinner Day. If you're not already signed up, please let us know what time you can work (we have jobs from 8am Sunday morning until cleanup is finished after 7:30 in the evening) and if there is a particular area you would most like to help with.  We welcome help from your children, grandchildren and friends as well, volunteers do not have to be CIAO members.  We are especially in need of cleanup help. This is a big job and in the past we've had just a few people staying very late and working very hard to get it done after having worked all day themselves. This year we want to make sure we have plenty of help. "Many hands make light work"!  If you're already working the last part of the day, please stick around and help us cleanup afterwards if you possibly can. We would deeply appreciate any help from anyone. 

BAKE SALE!!!!   Our bake sale ladies need donations of home-baked goodies of all kinds. Your donation will help us add considerably to the funds we raise for more college scholarships and donations to worthy local charitable causes.  Not sure what to bake? We'll take anything that we can sell and your recipe does not have to be Italian.  We can use cookies, cakes, brownies, snack bars, cupcakes, pies, breads, candies...salty or sweet.... Looking for inspiration?  Try , search the internet for bake sale best-sellers, dig out the cookbooks, we can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.  If you'd like to get a head start on your baking, we have deep freezer space available.  We will be at the Civic Center, April 12, the day before Pasta Dinner from 10a.m. until 2p.m. at the main Pasta Dinner entrance to accept your donations.  We will tag and price and we can also package your items if you like. We have coolers there to keep your goods refrigerated overnight. If you have any questions or need your baked goods stored in our freezers, contact Judy Seifer or Susan Lucente. 

Next Pasta Dinner Committee meeting Wednesday March 19, Tamarac 6:30p.m.
