This past weekend Larie Tedesco, Barbara Desoto and I worked the geneaology booth at the Kenner Festa Italiana. Larie and Barbara represented both the CSBA and the Jefferson Genealogical Society. The Festa is a great outreach event and I am always impressed with how many Usticesi descendants we meet and help rediscover their heritage. notice. I've really been swamped with life's distractions lately but I feel events like this are essential to the CSBA mission and I want to take this oopportunity to encourage others in our greater Usticesi community to get more involved in your local activities like the festa. We all have a lot to contribute and the organizers always need help and input to make improvements each year. Here in the NO area, along with the Kenner Festa, we have the Kenner St Rosalie Procession in September, NO St Lucy Feast day mass in December, the Columbus Day Festa in Baton Rouge and the St Joseph days parades in NO and Metairie. I'll do my best to organize the CSBA for these events. Please keep them in mind and think about involving yourself and your families in these great heritage events.
