"Torrese to Hold Franklin Outing" 
by Fred Ciampa

"Circolo Operaio Torrese, one of the oldest Italian American societies, will hold its annual outing Sunday at Way Down on the Farm, Franklin.  Buses will leave from the corner of Hanover and Cross sts., Boston at 8:30 AM.  Others will leave from Winchester, at Irving and Florence streets, and Roslindale, at Cummins Highway and Washington street.

The society was organized 49 years ago.  It was made up of people who hailed from Torre Le Nocelle, Province of Avellino.  It was formed in the North End, and even now, with many of the members living all over Greater Boston, regular monthly meetings are held in Boston's famed Italian colony.

A big membership drive is planned.  The society would like the younger people, former natives of Torre le Nocelle, or anyone related to them, to take an active part in affairs.

Charles Pizzano of Roslindale, president. Carmen DiChristoforo and Paolo DeMinico are co-chairmen.  Others on the committee include Domenic Rotondi, Nicola Bevilacqua and Emilio Ardolino."
