The Kelowna Canadian Italian Club is proud to name our communication publication THE GRAPEVINE once again.
The very first Grapevine newsletter was produced and mailed to members via Canada Post on March 1, 1975. The cost of a Canadian stamp was .06!
Past President Giuseppe (Joe) Iafrancesco and his wife Bianca have collected and preserved many of the original newsletters since the start.
We thank Mrs. Iafrancesco who has generously allowed us access to these copies to share with our members. These documents are a priceless treasure of our club’s history, made available for us to enjoy.
We will continue to share the past 47 years of “The Grapevine” with you through our social media and on our new webpage “The Grapevine.”
We would like to acknowledge Clara Poitras, Bianca (Russo) Iafrancesco, Erza Rampone, Lina (Russo) Cuglietta and Pina Scinicariello for editing the very first Grapevine on March 1, 1975.
We post the latest right from the KCIC & Our Partners!
